How to connect an iSCSI storage target to ESXi over IPv6

Verify IPv4 to IPv6 transition

Ethernet-based storage networks, such as those providing iSCSI or NFS disk resources, may be the last frontier for the IPv4 to IPv6 transition. Should these networks need to be updated, now is the time to verify all of the pieces and parts are supported and work as expected.

In this gallery, I’ll go through configuring an ESXi host to an iSCSI LUN over IPv6. Be sure to reference VMware KB 1010812 for more information on this configuration.
