I have 3 Esxi 6.7 hosts on Essentials Plus licensing. Using standard switche. All connextend to shared NAS storage.
only one of the three hosts successfully connects via iSCSI own connection. The other two esxi 6.7 hosts cannot connect To the same NAS datastore. . All host configured identically
what may be wrong? Why does only one host connect to the NAS while other two will not.
vCenter 6.7 connects successfully to NAS DATASTORE
Are the ESXi hosts in the same network?
Can you ping the NAS server from the esxi hosts?
HAve you tried mounting the NAS from CLI?
Manage a NAS File System with ESXCLI
For each NAS file system, the command lists the mount name, share name, and host name and whether the file system is mounted. If no NAS file systems are available, the system does not return a NAS filesystem and returns to the command prompt.
esxcli <conn_options> storage nfs add --host=dir42.eng.vmware.com --share=/<mount_dir> --volume-name=nfsstore-dir42
This command adds an entry to the known NAS file system list and supplies the share name of the new NAS file system. You must supply the host name, share name, and volume name for the new NAS file system.
No errors. Just cannot view the DATASTORE on the two ESXi hosts. it is like the DATASTORE is not presented to the two hosts...but was presented and allowed to connect to only the one ESXi host. Cannot understand why that is happenin. VCenter also see’s the datastore
have Tested the network connection to/from NAS and the two hosts. That is fine. Uplinks and Venice in the green. ISCSI iqn appears fine. Just No Datastore even appears when trying to connect to existing storage
Is it possible that the datastore is configured via NFS instead of iSCSI?
Then you can try this:
Mount NFS share to multiple ESXi hosts | vGeek - Tales from real IT system Administration environmen...
Some things to verify:
verify the iSCSI target settings on the ESXi hosts (Dynamic/Static targets)- verified. in fact, all hosts display the iqn but the datastore is not listed on some
