Can 2 VM clusters share same volume of ISCSI storage through a single LUN?

Hi VM expert,

I am new to VMware, and there are 2 VM clusters in my setup both having 3 esxi, we just got a huge storage, so my question is can I create a huge storage pool and share between 2 VM clusters through single LUN or should I create 2 different storage pools for 2 VMs and share through same LUN?

Thank you.

So you have 2 ESXi cluster and you want to connect to iSCSI storage? I would create separates LUN for each cluster.

You can map the same Volume to both cluster but its always recommended to keep separate for better management and troubleshooting.
