I have 3 vm host connected to an older emc san now via iscsi.
We now need to get these same 3  host connected to another new EMC san, vnx 5300 at the same time. The new san has 2- 10GB ports which are connected to a switch and then host themselves we have added a fibre nic to those also. I cant seem to get the san to see the connections from the VMware host.
Is there something I need to do on the vm consoles?
Like when it is iscsi I use the sw iscsi adapter and then connect it to the san like that but I am missing something now trying to get the fibre nic in the host, which is using iscsi, to be seen on the san...

well that is where my issue is.. The hba is a fibre hba which is going to be used for iscsi so I see the Cisco fibre card in there but cant do anything with it..

if it does not have *ANY* settings, it must be configured using the HBA BIOS at startup, e.g. to add the IP address of the SAN.

also check you have added the IQN of the HBA to your VNX SAN.
