VSC 4.0 / Vsphere5 / Fas2240 / DataOntap 8.1.1 / NFS - controllers not discovered


Hi ,

I've got a fas2240 / 8.1.1 to add to an existing infrastructure (Vsphere5 / VSC4.0 ) as NFS Datastores.

In VSC, when I had the controllers , they appear a few seconds as unknown and then disappear ...

Any hint ?

TIA , Reg/

Thanks to All



did you check whether they are configured correctly ( initators / tragets )


Do you have any storage added to the the ESX cluster yet? Try adding a volume to the 2240 using the VSC and see if they appear....

7-mode I assume...


Looks like opening a case with NetApp support will be your best shot. ( You need all the logs to troubleshoot this kind of a error).

1 think to make sure is that there is no license mismatch b/w the 2 controllers of the HA pair. ( I remember this was an old trick for a similar kind of problem).
