NAS AIOSB600C VMWare ESX and multiple host access

Hello!

I configured iSCSI LUN on windows management server, and add two iSCSI initiators (one for each ESX server). What I would like to achieve is VMotion. So I need that.

But when creating a new LUN with HP management tool AiO ASM there is no option for EXCLUSIVE STORAGE as mentioned in HP document 4AA1-5829ENW.pdf.

Because no exclusive storage is enabled, iSCSI LUN can't be accessed by two servers at the same time.

Now my question: where to get proper HP
All-in-One Storage System Management with
this option, because software that I use,
is lacking this.

All firmwares and software is updated.
Is it possible that I should perform some
other steps but not the one mentioned in
the document to enable this sort of access?

> HP All-in-One storage mangement
> Host a User defined Application
> Next
> iSCSI LUN
> IQN
> Next
> Application
> Next
> EXCLUSIVE STORAGE: Yes
(!THIS IS NOT AVAILABLE AT ALL!)
> OK
> Finish

Can anyone please help?
