Hi all,

Im stuck. I have a EMC-px12-400r have created 2 TB storage and configured it for ISCI use. ports are connected and configured on the same network as host.
 
I have a VMhost that Im trying to use the storage. I have ISCSI setup to use the same network.  They all connected to a VLAN and are using a 10.10.20.x network.

When I add storage I cannot see any available.

Am I missing something. Assuming all ports are physically plugged in and are connected.

This is how you setup network for ESXi host

see my EE Articles

HOW TO: Add an iSCSI Software Adaptor and Create an iSCSI Multipath Network in VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 4.1

HOW TO: Add an iSCSI Software Adaptor and Create an iSCSI Multipath Network in VMware vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 5.0

you may also want to enable Jumbo Frames

Have you also

1. Specified the IP Address of the SAN in the iSCSI Software Initiator setup ?

2. Can you ping the SAN IP Address from the Console?

3. Can you vmkping the SAN IP Address from the Console?

4. Setup and Bound iSCSI as per my EE Article?

5. Added the ACLs or IQNs to the LUNs on your SAN (access control to LUNs).

6. Refresh and Re-scanned Storage Adaptors.?
