No storage systems found with FCP node name

Hey -

I'm trying to set up virtual storage console for VM backups, but when I execute a job manually I get the error below. The ESX host itself can see the LUN just fine. I'm on ESXi 5.1 with VSC 4.2.1. I have not set up any zoning between my vCenter and the LUN itself, because I got the impression the VSC does its operations through the ESXi host, which does have direct access to the LUN and proper zoning. Is that correct? Any additional thoughts?

Re: No storage systems found with FCP node name

have you added the correct storage system to vsc?
