SAS Storage with Vcenter 6.0

Last Modified: 2017-03-15
Hi Experts,

We are configuring shared storage using a Dell MD3400 - SAS and need some help.

We have 2 esxi hosts and we are using Vcenter 6.0 for management. Both the esxi hosts can see the newly created LUN.

1) Do we need VMkernel switch with IP subnetting in order to use Vmotion seeing this is directed attached storage?
2) The goal is to use VMotion and HA between the 2 esxi hosts and the VM's that are on them.

Thank you
