Netapp EF600 with ESXi 7.01 dead path

peterkoran

Netapp EF600 connected with ESX 7.01 over fabric (Brocade G620) and Emulex LightPulse LPe32000 card.

 

Controllers and Namespaces are visible in ESX, but the "Path" status is "dead"

 

Emulex experts said because of volume block size is 4096. VMware support only 512

 

I've created a new volume group and volume with 512 block size, but ESX still show 4096 (ESX rebooted)

 

Any suggestion how to change volume block size on EF600 to 512?

Hello,

 

You cannot change the volume block size, you will have to recreate the volume. check the documentation below:
