Re: Best Practice - Volume Size - vmware esxi 4.1 free

Thank you Don, this is excellent once again.

We will install SAN Headquaters an monitor it as you mentioned.

We upgraded the iSCSI to firmware 5.2.0.  We actually had a DELL technician configure our ISCSI, upgraded the iSCSI, configured the two switches, and both servers (this is the part number on the order -- Implementation of a DELL Equallogic Array (961-3859)).  The service was worth every penny.  We would have never been able to configured it as they did using best practices (Jumbo frames, VLAN, flowcontrol, spanning tree portfast, Link Aggreggation, and connecting to the iSCSI from the servers).

We have two PowerConnect 6224, expertly configured by the Dell Technician.  ISCSI traffic is on vlan 11.  Our LAG is only using 2x Gb2, but I will see if I can configure a third.

We also have the latest and greatest patches for the free vmware ESXI 4.1

Thanks!!!!
