In Guest iSCSI setup on vSphere

Hi,

i'm about to set up networking for in guest SCSI (on Linux VMs) running on vSphere.

My idea is to give the VM 2 vNICs where one has a pNIC active on Fabric A (we're running on UCS) and the other on Fabric B.  Now for a vmKernel setup, we need to set the 'not-active' adapter to Unused on the portgroup.  But for an in-guest iSCSI setup, it's not really clear to me if this is also the case.for in Guest SCSI.  I found some documentation for Equalogic devices where they set the not-active NIC to 'Standby'.

Does anybody have guidance on how to set this up on Nimble?

Thanks!

Hi Sammy,

Take a look on InfoSight for KB-000157 - Configuring ESX for VM's with direct attached LUNs

This will walk you thru it - I'd post the KB here but for version control it will be better to reference the one on InfoSight - the  reference above is a direct link

Let us know if you have any issues

Cheers
