How to connect an ESXi host to an iSCSI storage target

Check to see if the storage is zoned correctly

The easy way to see if the storage is zoned correctly to the IQN of the ESXi host is immediately shown after the scan is complete. Here, multiple disk targets are visible to the host. In my lab, I allocate 2 TB LUNs for persistent data LUNs for permanent virtual machines and 1 TB LUNs for non-persistent virtual machines. That is the best practice I can have for the single-SAN development environment.
