I am attempting to configure the VSC Provisioning and Cloning functionallity in a vCenter 4.1 (backend ESX 4.0) environment. Everytime I try and add the storage controller, it just sits there for a long time, then finally comes back with a timeout error. This storage system has multiple IP addresses associated with it (1 for management, 1 for CIFS, 1 for iSCSI and 1 for NFS). I have tried using both the managment and CIFS ip connections with the same results. The iSCSI and NFS networks are not routeable, so I am unable to talk with them directly from the vCenter server (a common configuration, I would imagine).
I have looked at the filer options that seemed relevant to this, but am still not having any luck. I am open to any and all suggestions at this point.
