ESX 6.7 and iSCSi

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.
