I am trying to connect to my EMC Unity 300 device via iScsi and am having some issues with connecting to it. I have additional NAS devices (Qnap) on my network and was able to connect to them but when I try to connect to my EMC device it connects however it does not show any drive space nor hardware acceleration. I am new to VMWare and am muddleing through configruation but really don't understand the different configurations when VMware. We had a consultant come in and establish about 3 hosts with 4 to 5 VM's on each and he connected to 2 NAS (Qnap) devices and the 1 EMC Unity 300 device so I followed along what was done on the current Hosts but can't seem to get the EMC to display correctly.

Do I need to create new connections on all three devices for this host or are they already created? When I scanned on vSphere for the two Qnap devices it found them and mounted the drives but when I did the EMC it found it as well but has no disk space so assume it is not connected properly which then makes me question if I set up the Qnap connections correctly.
