thanks Andrew. can you please explain how to create a netapp lun for each esxi host? i total have 6 exsi to boot from iscsi.

Do you have vCenter installed, do you have Virtual Storage Console installed?

what state is your NetApp ?

e.g. do you know what a volume or aggregate is ?
I dont have any virtual infrastructure created yet. i need to be able to boot UCS blades from ISCSI during installation of ESXI 6.

I have aggr created already on Netapp and ready to create Vserver to present boot lUN, but couldnt find a good article how to create iSCSI boot lUN for esxi running on ucs .
