Present a LUN to multiple ESX hosts

Present a LUN to multiple ESX hosts


Please can you tell me how I can present a SAN LUN to multiple ESX hosts?  The system I am trying to setup is two ESX hosts connected to a SAN with the VMs stored on the SAN, but when I get one ESX host to see the LUN I cannnot therefore get the 2nd ESX host to see the same LUN.  Is there a trick I am missing?

RE: Present a LUN to multiple ESX hosts

I guess the terminology differs between SANs but are you adding all your hosts into the same storage group on the SAN?

What steps have you done so far and at what point is it failing? Have you rescanned the storage on the 2nd ESX host?

RE: Present a LUN to multiple ESX hosts

Thanks for your reply.  I eventually got this sorted, I was making a noobs mistake when configuring the mapping on the SAN.
