SAN transfers using iSCSI and SCVMM
Posted on 2010-04-09
I have set up several Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V hosts, as well as Microsoft SCVMM on our internal LAN. Everything is connected to the LAN, as well as via a SAN network on dedicated NICS. The NICs are not HBAs, just NICs.
When I want to move a VM to another host, or any VM work, the SCVMM shows that SAN transfers are possible, but it will not use the iSCSI SAN.
It appears that SCVMM does not see the iSCSI SAN using NICs as a usable path for SAN traffic. Is that true? Do I need a FC SAN? Do I need iSCSI HBAs?
Thanks in advance!
