    ESX & DS3400 direct connect?

    ckboon Enthusiast

      Hi,

       

      IBM's DS3400 is supported under the storage compatibility guide. However I am told I can not connect the DS3400 to my server directly. I need a SAN switch in between the server and DS3400 otherwise VMware will not support.

       

      Has anyone connect the DS3400 directly to their server via fibre channel? And does it work?

      I find it so stupid that I have to use a SAN switch to connect 2 hosts to a DS3400.

       

      Thanks for the help.

       

      Regards,

      Alan
