In order to experiment with the enterprise features of vSphere I needed shared storage between my ESXi hosts. As always, I turned to Openfiler. It was easy. There were plenty of good walkthroughs on how to set this up in such a way. When I finally got it working, I felt accomplished and decided to document the process for future reference.
My back-end network is not routed to my front-end network. My ESXi hosts and my Openfiler each have management interfaces residing on the front-end network and iSCSI traffic interfaces residing on the back-end network. I have a test lab Active Directory domain set up on the front end network.
Add in default gateway and DNS information here. And finally, enter a root password. The root password can be used at the Openfiler console shell. Everything else will use the administrative web interface which uses a different username and password. Either press enter to continue or wait the allotted time and Openfiler will start automatically.
Take note of the web administration address.
The IP address of the web interface is the IP address of the first network interface, eth0. From a computer connected to your front-end network, type in the address to the Openfiler web interface. Your web browser may holler about an untrusted certificate.
Just ignore it and continue on. The purpose of this blog post is to show you how to configure shared storage using Openfiler so you should have at least two ESXi hosts.
In my test lab, I have three, so I have three items to configure on this page. Be careful here. You can only add or delete one item at a time, pressing update after each change. Scroll down to create a partition. A volume group name of volume1 should be fine. Give it any Volume Name you like. This should bring you to the screen below where you can start adding iSCSI targets.
You can see all your created iSCSI targets if you expand the drop down box. I created three targets so I see three targets. For consistency, choose the top-most iSCSI target from the drop down list. Click the LUN Mapping item. The other two hosts cannot.
Follow this process for the other two iSCSI targets. Use the drop down list to highlight the second iSCSI target. Leave the other two ESXi hosts set to deny. Finally, configure the last iSCSI target.
Use the drop down list to highlight the third iSCSI target. You are done configuring Openfiler for shared storage. Configuring ESXi 4. Choose the first iSCSI target from the drop down list and click change.
Click on Network ACL from the top menu. The Add Static Target Server dialogue box appears. Enter the IP address of the Openfiler box.
The port number should be left at its default value. A message box will appear.
By that, I mean ensure you have connectivity between the two boxes. In my case, my ESXi boxes are virtualized inside and ESXi box and there are settings that must be configured special for this case. Ping both the ESXi host and Openfiler. You should be able to ping them both. If you have connectivity between each ESXi host and Openfiler, then go back and check your Openfiler settings.
I mistyped my first IQN and ran into this problem. From now on, I try to copy and paste.
