Unless I'm missing something, this is not supported since Storage Space uses SMB 3.0 and VMware does not support SMB as shared storage.---

Windows Server 2012 R2 can be configured as iSCSI Target and I believe we can configure iSCSI target for ESXi host.
Question: Is this configuration supported by VMware?
Some discussion around this topic here . https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/412532-esxi-5-5-and-iscsi-w2k12-r2
Is this following statement correct?
AFAIK, the Windows iSCSI target is NOT on the vSphere HCL, so it seems like a dead end to me:
I also having the same question,
Windows 2019 S2D to ESXi 6.7.0 servers.
Assume I have 4 servers with Windows clusters(s2d enabled).
Can we present the storage from Windows s2d through ISCSI to ESXi 6.7.0 servers?
Is this possible and recommended one ?
No answer yet?
I would also like to know this.
The answer is no. Its not supportet.
In addition to the answer by IRIX201110141, which is correct, and I'll reiterate: NO, IT'S NOT SUPPORTED
Let me also add that no one should be using Windows Server provided iSCSI targets with ESXi. Not only is this also supported, but it is a horrible implementation of iSCSI and can and will cause problems. You need other and different storage if you're going to run ESXi.
I hope you understand my request correct.
I don't want to run the S2D Cluster on the ESXi Cluster.
I just wanted to use the iSCSI target from a S2D Cluster (which runs on other hardware/server) as stroage on my ESXi Cluster.
