Hi,

I have a vmware esxi 5.5 server setup connected to a dell Equallogic 4000 SAN.  I'm attempting to connect to the group ip so I can use SAN HQ to monitor the SAN.  The server I'm attempting to connect from is a virtual machine running on the vmware host.  The general server network is 192.168.1.X and the san network 192.168.2.X.

Is there something I can do with this to allow a connection to the group ip?

thanks

You do not connect SAN HQ to the group IP Address, it's recommended and correct to connect it to the Management IP Address. (iSCSI)

But the SANHQ server must also be on the same LAN as the iSCSI Network e.g. Group IP Address, and have an IP Address on the iSCSI network.

Also you must have two IP Addresses for Management.
