I recently setup an iscsi server on a VNXe 3100 system. The IP address 10.0.4.25 I used for the iscsi server belongs to a dedicated subnet 10.0.4 .
I then created a generic iscsi storage and presented it to a ESX host that I had already added to the VNXe hosts. I gave it permissions for "virtual disk and snapshots".
On the ESX side, I setup a vmkernel portgroup with an IP on the same subnet 10.0.4. I then enabled software iscsi and did a dynamic discovery of my vnxe iscsi server, it was able to see it. But when I try to create a new VMware datastore > Disk/LUN otpion, I do not see any targets. I re-scanned the HBA couple of times and I also tried a static discovery by manually adding the target. Still cannot see the LUN to create a VMFS partition on it.
Rebooted the ESX host, no luck.
Both ESX and VNXe and see each other's targets, what am I missing ?
