StoreVirtual VSA



I am busy trialing the StoreVirtual VSA with a client with the opportunity to roll this out on 2 sites, and give me a new go-to-market for smaller clients who might not necessarily require an array like a P2000 (of any version).

We've successfully installed the FOM and 2 x VSA appliances on 2 x HP ProLiant DL380 G6 servers, and configured the storage from within the CMC. I can see a LUN of 100GB available...


However, my issue is presenting this to the 2 ESX hosts, and I don' t know what I am missing. What I AM missing is a comprehensive installation guide with proper steps instead of having to trawl through 3 different manuals.


This will be an iSCSI connection between the VSAs and the hosts, and although I present the LUNs to the hosts, no connection is made.


Do I need to use CHAP/Mutual CHAP/no CHAP? Is there something I need to do on the hosts which definitely doesn't seem to be covered in the manuals?

Is there a thorough installation guide someone can send to me (official or created personally)?


Both myself and the client like the product but if we can't get it to work, we then need to consider putting in an array.
