Vmware Lun

I am having some problem with VMware 3.5 ESX and EVA 4400. I have created a LUN, mapped the WWN of the Mezzanine card to the LUN, but while scanning the storage/LUN, it is not detected.
VMkernel, VMotion and IP storage have already been installed and configured.
Any idea how to get it to work?

Thanks.

Re: Vmware Lun

Are you using any virtual WWN's? Or just the physical WWN's from the mezz cards? I've had some of our ESX blades have issues with updating the storage from the SAN, whether it's allocating additional storage from the SAN or extending the LUN. What update version of ESX are you running? Also, what is the firmware for the HBA's on the ESX Hosts?

Do You see the LUN from HBA BIOS (CTRL+Q in server POST) ? If not, then there is a zoning issue or physical connection is not right.
