I have an HP Fibre Channel San and two blade hosts running ESX 4.1
Each of the hosts has 2 guests each running Windows Server 2008. The virtual images are housed in the SAN in vdisks
I need to map a drive on my SAN for data storage but none of my guest OS's can see the SAN. I know the hosts can see it, as they are storing the images in datastores on the SAN!.
I have a third blade that is just running Server 2008, and this had no problem seeing the SAN and letting me map drives to it.
I have set up a LUN and tried to map that, no luck. I have been able to map the internal hard drives on each of the blades as a drive but not the SAN.
I just need to be able to map a drive, in Server2008 so that my applications can store data in a place where all the guests can see it.
I hope I worded this so its clear. Thanks for the help.
