On my vmWare ESXi host, I am attempting to configure a RDM to an iSCSI target located on my SAN appliance in vcenter. This virtual server (2008 r2) will server as my newtwork file server.
I am unsure how to go about setting this up. I do have a dedicated NIC on my esxi host and I was wondering if I just create a new vswitch, add the NIC, go in to storage and add the new storage, then go to the virtual server and do the RDM settings? Please advise how to set this up. In the end, I want to enable VSS Snapshots and I will also be doing snapshots of the volume on my SAN appliance.
