Rick Crisci demonstrates how the ESXi host discovers LUNs on a storage array using dynamic discovery.
- [Instructor] In this video I'll demonstrate…how the ESXI host can discover luns from…an iScuzzy storage array.…Let's start by clicking on hosts and clusters.…And we'll take a look at ESXI01.vclass.local.…We're under the manage tab and under the storage view.…And in the storage view you can see I already have…a nice Scuzzy software adapter configured…and I've already bound it to a VM kernel port.…However there are no devices or paths…available at the moment because I haven't configured…my iScuzzy target yet.…
Let's click on targets and configure dynamic discovery.…We'll hit add here, and we'll put in the address…of the iScuzzy storage array that we want to connect to.…Remember we're configuring the ESXI host…so that it can reach out to a storage array…and discover the available luns that exist.…The address that you enter here should be…the address of the storage array that you want…your ESXI host to communicate with.…Now we've added a new target for dynamic discovery.…
This means that when we perform a rescan…
