Good morning,

Can someone point me to a primer on defining an ISCSI datastore in VCSA 6.7?  I created a target in Windows 2012 R2 sitting on top of a RAID 6 cluster using ReFS.  Would like to see how it performs.

Thanks!

I do have 2 switches: 1 10gbe that I set aside for host-host and host-iscsi traffic.  The 2nd switch is for other workstation & Internet traffic and is a 1gb switch.
