Multipathing for iSCSI - HP doc

In the following vSphere4 document, it recommends creating a VMkernel port for each iSCSI NIC and binding them together

(pg 6)

 

vSphere 4
http://h20195.www2.hp.com/v2/GetPDF.aspx/4AA3-0261ENW.pdf


In this new document (which is almost the same, just refreshed for vSphere 5) they have left that bit out.

 

vSphere 5
http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/techpaper/vmw-vsphere-p4000-lefthand-san-solutions.pdf

 

Should we be doing this for vSphere5?

Hi,

 

Thay way of working stays the same, only it got easier in version 5.

 

U still have to create 2 VMkernels with 2 IP adresses but the binding with the vmhba which was a command line thing in version 4 can be done now inside the GUI...

 

 

Kr,

Bart
