Hi,

I have a setup whereby we are making use of Dell R910 servers with Broadcom 10G nics on VMWare 4.1 and Dell EqualLogic SAN's.

I have setup the R910 to connect to the EqualLogic and the multipathing seems to be working fine, however I want to know if there is a way to verfiy if it is working using the broadcom hba iscsi offloading or is it using software iscsi offloading.

Could someone please let me know how I can verfiy this?

Regards,

Do the HBAs show up under Storage Adapters as hardware adapters or are you useing vmhba37, the software iSCSI initiator?

If the volumes are connected under the HBA in storage adapters, then the HBA is handling the iscsi offloading.
