    VSA, iSCSI and multiple esxi's

    hetz Enthusiast

      Hello,

       

      Most of the time I'm using the VCSA connected to an NFS server, and using the VCSA I'm mounting the share on multiple ESXi hosts. So far, so good.

      I didn't use iSCSI because I thought that sharing a single iSCSI session (even if it comes from multiple ports but they all comes from a single target) is a No No.

       

      However, in recent days I understood that it's possible to do it, and for home environment (single connection from iSCSI target to the VCSA) it's possible. Unfortunately, I couldn't find some good VMWare docs how's it possible and if it is possible at all.

       

      Just a simple diagram:

       

      192.168.0.10 - my ZFS On Linux machine which hosts the iSCSI server/target stuff

      192.168.0.15 - A simple (L2) switch

      192.168.0.20-192.168.0.25 - ESXI machines

      192.168.0.30 - my VCSA.

       

      Possible? how so? any links would be helpful
