Present LUN to virtual guest

Hi everyone,

 

I was wondering if there is an easy way to present an existing logical disk (LUN) of a MSA2312fc to a virtual guest in a Hyper-V environment through the fiber storage controller that is installed in the Hyper-V host (so no iSCSI) ?

 

Tanks in advance,

 

Ronald T.

Hi,

don't virtual hosts in Hyper-V get a virtual WWPN?
Or maybe you don't have NPIV..

Why do you want to do it through this controller inside the hyper-v host?

Re: Present LUN to virtual guest

Hi,

 

Indeed there is no NPIV available. The situation is as follows:

There is a lot of data stored on a logical drive on the MSA. This LUN is presented to a physical machine. That machine will be replaced by a virtual machine, which needs to access the same data. So I want to present the current logical disk to the virtual machine.

 

Don't know if this is possible at all though or should I use a passthrough disk in Hyper-V ?

 

Thanks for your reply.
