How do I setup VCB for ESX with VCB Proxy and iSCSI Initiator?

Hello,

I am trying to setup VCB with ESX 3.5.  I have installed the VCB Proxy Server on my Windows 2003 machine.  My VM's are stored on an Equalogic SAN using iSCSI.  From my understanding, the Windows VCB Proxy needs to have access to the LUNs where the VMs are stores.  I downloaded and installed the iSCSI Initiator from Microsoft and am stuck at this point.

I have followed some instructions from VMware, regarding disabling automount within Diskpart, and I have allowed access to the LUNs via the iSCSI address through the Equalogic configuration tool.  I can see the LUNs in Disk Manager, but I can't access them as they don't have drive letters.  I'm not sure where to go from here as I am trying to set up the VCB Proxy for usage with Backup Exec and the ESX Agent.

Any assistance from someone who is familiar with how to setup the Windows Proxy to access the LUNs for VCB would be greatly appreciated.

if the LUNs are visible in disk manager, have you tried running the VCBMounter.exe command line from the proxy to check if you are able to mount any VM stored on this LUN?

if you can see in the LUNs in disk manager, that is enough.

go to X:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Consolidated Backup Framework\

you can try a command like:

vcbmounter -h ESX_IP -u ESX_USER -p ESX_PASSWORD -a name:vmmachine \ -r c:\mnt\vcb-backup\ -t fullvm -m san
