Direct attach iSCSI to ESXi

I'm new to Nimble, seems direct attach is only supported with FC. May someone confirm if I'm reading SPOCK correctly?

What would that entail?  Eth cables from the array directly attached to an ESXi?  No Eth switch in between?

Correct, 10Gb DAC cables with no switches in between

Confirmed. Direct attach is only supported with FC. For iSCSI connections, you must have a switch. Two for High Availability.
