ESXi and ISCSi
Posted on 2010-09-22
I am setting up a fresh install of ESXi 4.1 on a Dell R610. All went well on the setup. No problem remotely configuring with vSphere. Now would like to connect to Buffalo iSCSI. The ISCSI already serves one machine no problem, Would like to use part of the ISCSi as additional datastore. Server has multiple nics, using nic1 for virutal machines, etc.192.168.1.0/24, esxi is on 192.168.1.132. Set up second nic 192.168.100.5, as ISCSI is on 192.168.100.2 (static). nic reports being able to see all devices in the x.x.100.1-10 range. Go to configure iSCSI software adapter in configuration tab->details-> Properties, Initiator is enabled -> Dynamic Disovery, entered IP and port of ISCSi box, but no devices show up in Details->Devices. Go to Storage ->Add storage->Disk/LUN, but no devices available.
It seems like the storage adapter may be looking on the wrong network? If so, how is it possible to connect the iSCSI software adapter to the 192.168.
