  • VMware and IBM DS3400 SAN


    My VM infrastructure as:

    1. DS 3400 with 3 LUN's
    2. ESXi 5 x 3 server
    3. VCenter and Backup Exec on same server (Windows 2003 x64)

    I created Host Group on SAN contains: ESXi's Servers + the Exec Backup server
    and LUN mapped to Host Group

    the Question is:
    What is the Host type must be for ESXi's and Exec backup servers:

    i already configured as: ESXi (Linux Cluster) and Exec Backup (Windows Server 2003/2008 Non Clustered)

    Please Advice

    That sounds about right..

    But Backup Exec will not be able to really use the data on the LUN - since it formatted with VMFS - and the only thing that can read it is ESX
