Having Issues Adding Nimble Lun ESXi 5.5, 5.1

I am having some issues with adding the nimble volume as a datastore to esxi 5.5 and 5.1 hosts

I see it mounted as a volume under the iscsi hba but cannot add it as a datastore. When I try to add it I get this under the vmkernel log in esxi

Re: having issues adding nimble lun esxi 5.5, 5.1

Hi Tony,

This looks like there is some connectivity issues with your hosts communicating to the storage device (I/O errors and Sense Data errors).  So it looks like there maybe an issue with your physical or ESX network configuration.

Would it be possible to log a call with support as I am sure they will assist and guide you through your ESX networking setup.

I'd also highlight the excellent VMWare Integration guide.  You will find this off InfoSight > Downloads > Integration Kits  > Nimble Connection Manager for VMWare > VMware Integration Guide.  Quick link is here

Chapter 2 will guide you through the Networking and ESX configuration best practices

Cheers

Rich

Re: Having Issues Adding Nimble Lun ESXi 5.5, 5.1

yes it was an issue with the initiator ports not set at 9216 mtu.

once that was set, everything started working fine

thanks
