i am trying to find out the advantages of using pass-through lun for a vm instead of using vmdk file.
This is what i noticed in my client who has three esxi hosts which are attached to netapp and a san device.
The vm are using its own iscsi initiator to connect to lun in the storages. That is , the vm server has either ms iscsi initiator or sanpdrive and connecting the lun.
I want to know what the advantage of using this instead of using a vmdk file which support more than 2TB?
The esxi are ver 5.1.
