Layer 4 ESXi hosts are attached to datastores allocated from Openfiler appliance. Storage space will be allocated as Virtual Disk through base machine hard disk.
Layer 1 Base machine running with any client operating system Windows 7, 8. Enter default user id and password as mentioned below. In below figure, I have added subnet for Now hosts in this subnet will be able to access these shared storage. Initially you will be able to see single disk which has assigned as boot drive. You will be able to see that disks here in Block Device section. In below case, I have added two additional drives.
Now you can use these disks to allocate datastores in ESXi hosts as shared storage. Before assigning it, you have to perform few more steps mentioned below. Refer to below section "Create a Partition". Provide required information and Click on Create. Perform same steps for other disk which all are attached to this. Now you have to create Volume Groups using these volumes. Click on Add Volume.
Provide required information as shown below. Click Create to proceed. We created one Volume called "vi-datastore" of 20 Gig size. You can create multiple Volumes in single Volume group. You are just few clicks away before it can be use in ESXi. See below image for available storage adapters in this ESXi hosts.
There is no iSCSI adapter exist in host. To add adapter, follow below steps. Click OK. WWN number starting from iqn.
Click on Dynamic Discovery tab. Enter Openfiler IP address here and leave default port as Click Close to proceed. If you want to use CHAP authentication, you have to configure it in Openfiler console also, then you can choose here. These options are available for CHAP settings. Click on Yes to reflect the configuration changes. Proceed to add datastores. Review the information and Click Finish to complete. In below example, we have created three datastores. Now these block level iSCSI datastores are ready to use to store files.
Now we are done with configuration of block-level storage. To configure this, go back to Openfiler Console and follow below steps.
Install and configure Openfiler for ESXi shared storage with NFS and iSCSI
In this article I will explain how to setup Openfiler. There is also an appliance available that you can download but the appliance is not always updated to the latest version and I had mixed results in the past with importing it into different environment. Therefor I have based the article on installation of the ISO-file you can download it at www. I have used version 2.
