Hi There,

I have a mirrored copy of a ESX iSCSI LUN running on Vsphere 4.0 to our DR location,
I am trying to mount the mirrored LUN on a ESX3i server. Every time I go remap it it finds the LUN
ok but doesn't seem to pick up the VMFS datastore within the LUN and when I go add a new datastore
it tries to get me to reformat the whole thing.

First question, is what im doing possible, and secondly if so, what am I doing wrong?

Any help much appreciated.

Take a look at the KB again

Note: All of the commands listed are available in ESXi via the vSphere CLI.

Turns out it was the version of LUN  I was trying to mount. YOu cannot mount a ESXi3.5 LUN on a 4.1 box.
