esx san storage

esx san storage

From the AIX side, how do I 'discover' a volume created on dell's esx san?

RE: esx san storage

cfgmgr, or it is not zoned correctly on the san or assigned correctly on the storage.


RE: esx san storage

cfgmgr does not discover the disk :(

RE: esx san storage

Does that Dell, SAN support Aix, do you have to load Dell drivers.

Tony ...  aka chgwhat
When in doubt,,, Power out...

RE: esx san storage

I am missing something.  There are two other devices (volumes) installed and visible on the AIX side.  I have defined a new device (volume) in the EqualLogic control panel with the same characteristics as the other two.  The only difference is that the two working devices show 1 iSCSI connection each, and the new one, understandibly, shows 0 connections.

I have never worked with EqualLogic :(

RE: esx san storage

Never worked with EquaLogic neither, but it seems you need to map the new volume to the AIX host first. Mapping is the way you tell the SAN box which hosts can see which volumes.
