Is it possible to failover an exchange vm (luns automaticallyattached etc) which is using snapdrive and sme with vmware SRM if the guest isaccessing the luns via iscsi with the iscsi initiator within the guest?

Within tr-3822 this solution is discussed, however, the lunsare attached via RDMs presented from ESX and accessed via the ESX software iscsiinitiator as opposed to the guest accessing the lun direct.

I have a feeling this may be more difficult as in guestiscsi NICs will need an IP address change to reflect the storage network at theDR site??

Anyone done this or have any ideas?

A good discussion here with alot of links to docs.  Not sure if it specifically matches your requirements but it mentions iscsi as part of the solution.

Great, the document does mention using iSCSI RDMs via ESX if you want to useSRM.

I am fairly sure it will be for the reasons mentioned above (it makes senseas you do not need to change ip addresses with the guest OS to connect to yourluns).
