- There are two options for iSCSI port binding. Implicit binding, and explicit binding. The latter requires to add VMkernel ports to Port binding in the iSSCI Software adapter, and shall only be used for environments where all target ports are on the same subnet, i.e. can be reached from each VMkernel port.
- Yes, the storage system sends all available target IPs to the iSCSI initiator (the ESXi host.
As a side note, the configuration that you've posted doesn't match what you described for vmk1. The screenshpts show vmk1 as vMotion in another subnet.
Thanks for your help and response.
VM1 is used for Vmotion, but when i configured software ISCSI adapter and did implicit binding, I noticed ESXI was able to discover alternate paths to Storage over vmk1.
That is what made me curios.
Have a good weekend!!
