i have an ESXi running on 4.0 i want to add an Synology DS212 on an iSCSI connection.
this is what i did:
i uses an unused networkcard and created by "networking" a new virtual switch and added "VMkernel" i added an IP adress on the card 192.168.0.50
then i go to the Synology drive. there i also created an iSCSI Lun. the Synolog has also an IP 192.168.0.100
When the LUN is setup i did go to storage adapters and clicked on the "proporties" of the iSCSI Software adapter. Next i go to Static recovery and added the IP 192.168.0.100 and port 3260 and my iSCSI target name. Filled in the correct CHAP credentials and press ok.
when i do a rescan of the HBA he do not find any iSCSI connection.
i have 4 networkcards.
2 are connected to the network and are running the VM's
1 is connected directly to the Synology NAS (for iscsi)
1 is not used/connected
strange is that when i connect the Synology on the local lan of my network the connectoin works. but when i add the Synology directly on a free networkcard of my server nothing works.
what am i missing?
