I have 2 fairly simple question about vmware vcentre 5.5 running 2 ESX hosts attached to a EqualLogic SAN. No ESX clusters. No datastore clusters. Just standalone 2 ESX servers managed through vcentre 5.5 .
I have created a new iscsi volume in SAN and given permission to both ESX hosts to access it.
In vcentre , I can see this volume attached to a one host. In the other host , it get discovered but it doesn't show up as a available volume to create a data store.
1. Why does this new volume does not show up in both ESX servers ?
What I would like to happen is to create a shared datastore that can be accessed by both ESX servers.Similar to what says (But unfortunately not shown how its done anywhere) in here.
Sharing a VMFS Datastore Across Hosts:
Seems to be a very straightforward thing to do. But I really can not find out a way to do it.
I can add a datastore through vsphere web interface. But then that datastore only appear in one ESX server. Not on the other one.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
