ESXi 4.1 Broadcom iSCSI Adapter - how configure this hba?

Hello All,

I testing Broadcom Adapter for iSCSI but adapter didn't work for me.

Disks-Mounted.png

I did the same configuration as the iSCSI Software Adapter.

But Broadcom iSCSI adapter does not see the drives in the array.

Braodcom logs on to the matrix and session breaks.

What i'm doing wrong?

You met with something like that??

How configure Braodcom iSCSI adapter? Where is white paper for this?

Tom

maybe you can have a try the below steps,

1, find which vmnic located with vmhba34 in the same adapter?

esxcli swiscsi vmnic list --adapter vmhba34

2, port binding this vmnic to vmhba34

esxcli swiscsi nic add --nic --adapter vmhba34

could you please recheck lun masking correct or not since vmhba34 has already found the array?

so far I have no more ideas;

maybe you can have a check vmhba34 MTU, as your attached screenshot shows, MTU is 9000?

or check what are the differences vmhba34 from software iscsi adapter? vmkiscsi-tool --Parameter vmhba34

vmhba34,35,36,37 is a BroadCom Iscsi Adapter

When I connect vmknic0 or 1 or 2 or 3 to vmhba39 (Software ISCSI Adapter

) all is OK iscsi see LUN.

On Broadcom adapter not see LUN, but trying connect to matrix and

closing session

This all appears to be set up properly, and the esxcli swiscsi nic list command would nott be showing the correct NIC if some step was missing.

What target are you using?

What is the address of the target you are using? Note that Broadcom adapters won't use next hops.

Again, this all looks OK.

Is the Matrix on the HCL? I'm not familiar with it. Does it have any sort of access control that might be getting in the way?

Can you grep the iscsid log entries out of the /var/log/messages file? This might give some indication of why the connections are not being established. Does the array side provide any log of events? Based on what you've described so far, nothing seems to be out of whack, so it's going to take a little more digging.

Thanks,

Andy

Arun,

You might want to start this as a new message thread. Broadcom iSCSI HBAs and Brocade FC HBAs are as similar as Coq Au Vin and Foghorn Leghorn.
