ESX 6.7 and iSCSi

Post by jhaines » Mon Oct 19, 2020 9:54 pm

Hi,

I have two ESXi 6.7 servers and want them both to use my QNAP, can I get both ESXi 6.7 servers to attach to one iSCSI LUN on the QNAP, or do I have to create two ISCSI LUNs on the QNAP?

Regards

never share block storage LUNs to more than one client at a time

so you would have to create two LUNs

Hi, jhaines
Yes you can easily share the LUNs between multiple ESXi hosts.
We run 3 ESXi 6.7 and 7.0 hosts that access multiple shared LUNs on QNAPs.
How would you otherwise be able to create a cluster that can access the same datastores?
Don't forget to set the ACL for each host so they can access the Targets.
Regards, Edwin

OP did not specifically ask about HA...if so..yes the answer would be different
