VMware ESXi iSCSI Trouble, helpful Vmware Communities forum posting.

I recently posted directions and pictures of my iSCSI setup for someone on the VMware VMware Communities Forum. I referred to my earlier post, See
http://rogerlunditblog.blogspot.com/2008/11/vmware-esxi-adding-iscsi-target.html

Here is the VMware Communities Forum Post, Here http://communities.vmware.com/message/1121743 His problem was titled : ESXi not connecting to MSA1510i via iSCSI

Remember also to setup two Vswitches, both with a port group, and a Vkernel for both your production network, and iSCSI network, and leave the gateway blank.

His deduction was that he had a bad nic, so remember, Always check your hardware!

I thought for those of you looking to setup a iSCSI network on ESXi or having Troubles, it could help.

Post your thoughts.
