In this video, learn how you can use a dedicated hardware iSCSI connector to connect an ESXi 6.7 host to an iSCSI Storage Array, even without configuring a VMkernel port.
- [Instructor] In this video, … I'll explain an independent hardware iSCSI initiator. … This is a solution that we can utilize in our ESXi hosts … to provide connectivity to an iSCSI storage rate … over in ethernet network. … So let's take a look at how this works. … Here we have a Windows virtual machine on the left … with a virtual SCSI controller, … and as that virtual machine generates storage commands, … they flow out of the virtual SCSI controller, … and they hit a physical storage adaptor. … Now, in this case, the physical storage adaptor … is an independent hardware iSCSI initiator … that has built-in ethernet ports. … So we don't require any sort of VMkernel port … in this situation. … The independent hardware iSCSI initiator … is a complete hardware solution. … We don't need a softwire SCCSI initiator identified, … we don't need VMkernel port … that's got it's built-in ethernet points that we can use … to connect directly to the storage network, … and the big benefit of the …
