Volume handling MSA 2040 and 2 HPDL380 on SAS

Hello community

Just purchased new MSA 2040 on SAS with two DL380g9 Servers and I have to admit being a bit confused about all the options for generating disks, volumes, pools, etc.

I would like to have failover secure config for using the MSA and Servers for VMware vsphere environment ensuring a controller failover of MSA is handled disruption free and automatic meaning changing path automatically and server downtime.

Both servers connected on both controllers via SAS.

Could someone please advise in how to best address this topic?

Thanks a lot.

Cheers

Create a Host Group ESX an put both ESX Servers in there.

Create One or two Pools and Volumes in there.

Present the Volumes to the ESX Group.

On the ESX Server configure Round Robin.

thats all
