I am running an dell r720xd esxi 6.0.0, 15169789 lab.  I create a volume on an Equallogic ps6500. on the lab host, set my access policy and added the iscsi initiator. On the host i have 4 nics. 0 an 1 for management. 2 and 3 for vm traffic and iscsi. The host shows the iscsi vmkernal bindings are compliance and after setting dynamic discover for the dell equallogic group IP, it finds the LUN. However it shows the iscsi path as not used and the paths are not visible. whats weird is that i can ping only one of the equllogic NIC's ( from esxi and not the others nor the group IP. ( I can ping the iscsi VLAN gateway from the host lab (  from another host connecting to the same SAN i can ping all.  on the lab server iscsi is set to jumbo frames. i have tried to remove the iscsi adapter from the host and reboot/re-add but the same behavior.  I have two other hosts that i was able to connect to the LUN with no issues so i know its something with my lab host.  Any thoughts on what i may be missing are appreciated.
