Thanks for your quick response
I don't want to connect more than 255 in an ESX. I want to use more than 255 in an ESX cluster
I explain my environment with an example, it's easy (Maybe for this I have problems)
I have a NetAPp where I have created a single iGroup called iGroupExample.
I have a vCenter with 10 vsphere servers
All 10 vsphere servers are included in the iGroupExample
I have created 300 LUNs in the iGroupExample
Then... the problem
When I want to assign LUN number 270 as a RDM in a VM on vSphere 1 --> I can't see the volume becase ESX can show more than 255 volumes in the host
An alternative of this problem I thought:
- I can create 2 iGroups iGroupExample1 and iGroupExample2
- 5 vspheres are going to be allowed on iGroupExample1 and the other 5 vspheres on iGroupExample2
Then managed by iGroupExample1 I create 150 LUNs and for iGroupExample2 I can create 150 LUNS
It seams that with this model then, for 5 first servers I can manage 150 LUNS and for the other 5 servers I can manage the other 150 LUNS
is that assmption correct?
The problem it's that I have all this 10 servers in the same cluster, then, my opeartors should be able to vMotion the VM in any of the 10 servers. But I can't because this restrictions
Is there any way to handle this problem? Or maybe I am doing something wrong in my infrastructure design?
