I am in the process of putting together a proposal for VMWare Infrastructure using an ISCSI SAN
for storage. The SAN will consist of AIO1200r SAS (NAS/iSCSI) or Dell MD3000i (iSCSI) or similar product.
My problem is this I (will) have multiple Windows VM's running load balanced (lb is hardware based outside VMI) services that will 'ideally' require to access the same shared folders. I take it I would need to go with NAS AIO1200 approach in order to facilitate this without the need for a storage only VM, i.e. the SAN Box would handle the file serving and not another VM, this I assume would leave only the
Is there anyway to allow the shared folder location to appear to all VM's as local storage rather
than a windows share ? I ask this as development tell me they've had issues with windows services and mapped drives in the past (I assme this may have been file length or permisson related)
Any help appreciated.
