VMWare iSCSI Lun

I have VM installed on 2 ESX servers and connected to an HP AIO 1.5 TB NAS.  I have created a 200GB LUN that works fine.  I needed more space for another image and so I created a second iSCSI Lun.  It says not connected to host and VM on a rescan can't see the new LUN.  I am very new to this, so please don't assume I know what you are talking about.  How can I get this LUN seen as a Datastore?

To be precise, are you using NAS or iSCSI SAN ?

The reason I am asking this is configuration differs between the two.

I suggest that you attach a screenshot of your Storage Adapters Tab located under Configuration Tab of ESX Host

From the screenshot, I understand that you are using Software iSCSI Initiator which requires a VMKernel Port Group and a Service Console Port Group for it to function properly.

Have you configured this as required ?

I couldn't tell you, since most of what you indicated went over my head.  As I stated above, I am very new to this technology.  How would I determine if it was configured?

Simply navigate to the Networking Tab (check the screen shot - its available just above the Storage Adapters Tab)

Please attach a screen shot of this Tab.

For some reason, EE won't accept a file this morning.  I uploaded, but it doesn't ask for a discription and when I submit, the file isn't there.

The solution was in using the MS iSCSI target connector MMC to connect the target and initiator.
