I currntly have a 3.5 unfrastructure with 2 nost and i just installed 4.0 on a 3rd host and added it to vCenter. I have a few questions related to storage that i need a push on. I didn't install the first 2 hosts so i am a bit green. I have all the HBA information correct (went by the other hosts i have in the cluster), can ping the hba's, can scan the hba's, but when i try to add storage nothing shows up. Really not sure which direction to go at this point. Any hlep is appreciated. Thanks
Just to clarify, are you saying that you haven't upgraded your VirtualCenter server to vSphere yet? I thought that if VirtualCenter was upgraded, that it wouldn't allow a 4.0 host to be added, but I haven't actually tried it because it is NOT SUPPORTED. If VirtualCenter has not been upgraded the first step is to upgrade VirtualCenter otherwise results will be unpredictable.
For details on what order you need to upgrade things in (VirtualCenter first, then ESX, then VMs) and upgrade procedures reference:
It does make sense to me. As green as i am i didn't realize the storage needed setup. It all looks good and i have learned a lot so far. But i'm not finished yet!! Thanks for all the assistance.
