hello

I need help.
I have 2 esx vsphere4 that have stored their virtual machines on an hp iscsi storage.
is it possible to add another physical iscsi storage to these servers?
I guess I have to create a second iSCSI Software adapter, is that right?
hope anyone can help me cause as usual it's an emergency.

Have you tried adding the new Target under the discovery tab of the iSCSI initiator?

yes, but it does not show up, I can only see my first HP iSCSI ENCLOSURE.
does one iscsi software adapter support 2 seperate iscsi storages?

Are you sure you have presented the LUNs to the server you are trying to connect to it?
