msa2012i 16 host limitation

The msa2012i is documented as having a 16 host limit. Does this mean 16 physical hosts and the ability to use many more virtual hosts or does the virtual instance count as one host as well.

Re: msa2012i 16 host limitation

My guess is that they really mean "16 iSCSI initiators".

A virtual machine that uses a software initiator within the guest OS counts as a host. A virtual machine that exclusively uses an emulated parallel SCSI adapter (like VMware ESX' Buslogic or LSIlogic) does not count against that limit.
