Re: Installing iSCSI host utility on esxi 5.1 getting error

The iSCSI host utility is not supported, nor is it necessary, on ESXi. You should use the native iSCSI capabilities in ESXi, and the NetApp VSC to manage storage through the VI client.

Thanks,

Erick

Sorry but also want to know from where will I get iqn number to mask the LUN from storage to VMware server

Re: Installing iSCSI host utility on esxi 5.1 getting error

Using NetApp OnCommand System Manager you can browse to protocols->iSCSI, and find the NetApp IQN number that you can use to connect storage from the ESXi host. Here is a link from VMware on how to configure iSCSI in ESXi: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1008083
