iSCSI initiator on VM?
Posted on 2010-08-28
I'm having an issue initiating iSCSI on a virtual machine so I can connect to the shared storage.
Usually we do this on physical servers connected to the switch and it works no problem because we are able to ping those private IPs using the servers second NIC. But within the Virtual Machine, we can't ping those IPs therefore, cannot connect to the iSCSI shared storage.
When I add a new NIC in the VM and give it an IP Address of 192.168.x.x (same as iSCSI network) it does not ping.
What do I have to do to virtually connect to the iSCSI network so I can use the iSCSI initiator?
Thanks guys/gals :)
