Have a 2 host VM Lab. Data store on each host (local) and 2 LUNs (Datastores) on a SAN
Up graded an old host to a newer host in lab. Used HBA, Hard Drives, Memory for older server in newer server. (HP G5 to G6 server).
With some help yesterday was able to mount the local datastore (hard drives) from old server to the new host. Success!
Now I would like to mount the SAN Luns to the new host.
Not sure of the steps to accomplish this. The host does not see the VMFS datastores. The VMWare Knowlege base indicates I should be able to mount these datastores using the webclient, by selecting the add datastore. But I must be missing something, because there are no vmfs stores to load.
I assume I have to establish connectivity between the host and the SAN, before the VMFS store are visible. How do I go about this.
