Hello, I have a NetApp/VMware infrastructure. The NetApp storage disk is FAS2552 C-mode 8.3.The connections between FAS2552 and VMware ESXi are fibre channel (with QLogic SANbox 5802 switchs). There are one ESXi in version 4.1 and 5 ESXi in version 5.5, in a other cluster. The ESXi 4.1 can connect to FAS2552’s LUNs. But all ESXi 5.5 cannot connect to same LUNs. I do not find the reason. The configuration is the same for LUNs and zonning. And “fcp ping” command returns “is alive” for all initiators.
For exemple : VMP06 is ESXI 4.1 and VMP11 is ESXi 5.5
