Dell Equallogic PS6000X - VMware vSphere setup
Posted on 2011-03-01
Please forgive me if this question seems a little much. I am struggling to understand the relationship between my iSCSI device and my vmware machines.
So far I have 3 vmhosts on seperate blade servers, a vcenter server on a stand alone machine and a Dell Equallogic iSCSI device.
I have made a datastore on the iSCSI from vCenter and it works great.
My question is, what is the best practice in setting up my vm guest OS(s) using the iSCSI?
Do I make one giant volume on the iSCSI for the VM machines to use?
Do I make a new LUN for each of the guests?
I want vmotion and the ability for vcenter to swap virtual machines from one host to another.
