Since a while I've got a weird issue with adding volumes.
They just don't appear after a rescan.
We're running 8 ESX 3.5 hosts containing 120 VM's.
The hosts are connect to a Equallogic/Dell iSCSI san. This san has 69 volumes, there are 3 connect to phisical servers, the other 66 are for the vmware hosts.
In this setup everyting was working fine, until I added the 66th volume. Now the new volumes don''t show and I can't connect new luns to the hosts.
The rescan takes very long, when we started it took about 1 minute, now it takes more then 6 and -worse - it doesn't show the new volumes anymore.
Can somebody help me out ?
Maybe ESX 4 will support more...

We can't help you at this point in time. I would expect that the new version will have an increased limit, but I can't promise anything.
With 8 servers and 120 VMs I'm wondering why you have so many LUNs?
