  • 2 esx server access same iscsi datastore simultaneously.

    I am evaluating ESX server 3.5 and StarWind ISCSI Target. This setup is currently running in VMWARE FUSION . My current setup is

    1) ESX Setup
    a) 2 ESX Servers with 8GB Inbuilt HDD
    b) Software ISCSI enabled on Security profile
    c) Both esx server are configured for using same STARWIND ISCSI Target LUN.

    2) VC Setup
    a) Installed on a W2K3 Virtual machine

    3) Starwind ISCSI Target
    a) VC PC is also having a 100 gb virtual disk which i have configured as image file device
    b) Its setup as i) Asynchronous Mode & ii) Allow multiple Connections.

    Problem i am having is, when esx 1 is up and running i can access this iscsi datastore and it works fine, but server esx 2 cant access at all. If esx 1 is shutdown then esx 2 can access the data store. So looks simultaneous access is not working properly.

    Is there any special setting to allow 2 esx server access same iscsi datastore simultaneously.
