How to install Command View 9.2 in a virtual Machine

Hello,

I try to install Command View 9.2 in a virtual Machine. (VSphere 4)

In the QS it's supported to install CV 9.2 into a VM and using NPIV to access the LUN0 of the EVA.

Are there any "installation guide" ?

Sure. It is in the CV-EVA V9.2 installation guide ;-)

You need to map a SCSI device. NPIV might not work with controller devices and it won't give the VM an emulated Fibre Channel adapter anyway.

But as far as I know, you can't really make use ofit _today_, because you need a newer controller firmware. Well, it _might_ work on first try, but fail after the master controller role as change and VMware does not do an automatic path switch.
