I am setting up a new vmware environment. Currently, I have only one server with two physical network adapters inside it. I have a SAN cluster sitting on my network with primary ip addresses of "10.0.5.2" and "10.0.5.3". My local LAN network is "10.10.4.0. " These two SAN are also used for the oracle RAC environment. Now I want to make use of the storage space on the SAN and try to connect the SAN to VMware Vsphere host. What is the best practice to do it? Do I need make a new VLAN on my switch and do I need add the SAN and the host's ips to this VLAN.
Basically, I am following this article on vmware's site: http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/techpaper/vmware-multipathing-configuration-software-iSCSI-port-binding.pdf
I got stucked in the step to creating VMkernel network because I don't know if I need select any options for "VLAN ID (optional)"
I am pretty new in VMware, any help and replies will be great appreciated.
