Checking the Server Environment
Connection to servers is possible in the following environments.
Check the "Server Support Matrix" for server environment conditions.
2.1
Hardware
• VMware ESX connection may require the use of Fibre Channel switches and CEE/FCoE switches, depending
on the version of VMware ESX used. Fibre Channel switches and CEE/FCoE switches that can be connected
to the ETERNUS DX vary depending on the connection environment (OS or the ETERNUS DX).
• Access the following documents or use the "Server Support Matrix" to determine which models are compatible with which servers.
- Search the VMware Compatibility Guide
http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php
• ETERNUS DX storage systems support SAN Boot. For SAN Boot details, refer to "3.4 SAN Boot Notes" (page
14).
• VMware ESX may be SAN Booted if a SAN Boot capable Converged Network Adapter card is used. For more
details of VMware ESX SAN Booting, refer to the following web-site and documents:
- Reference URL:
http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/
- Reference documents:

Notes
Note the following issues when connecting the ETERNUS DX to a server.
3.1
Connection Notes
• To ensure reliable access to the ETERNUS DX storage systems, the following methods are recommended:
- Connection via multiple paths
- Balancing of active paths
VMware ESX
CNA#1
CNA#2
Example configuration
with a load balanced
LUN distribution
Cable
CEE/FCoE switch #1
CEE/FCoE switch #2
Cable
CM#0 CA#0 Port#0
Active path#1
(to LUN0)
CM#1 CA#0 Port#0
LUN0
LUN1
Active path#2
(to LUN1)
Setting up multiple access paths between the VMware ESX and the ETERNUS DX storage systems, then
using the VMware ESX's multipath function, provides improved access redundancy.
• When a multipath connected VMware ESX server is restarted, the active path for each LUN is automatically
set. For details on path setting, refer to "3.2 VMware ESX Operating Notes" (page 14).
• It is recommended that system design sheets be drawn up.
When deciding the access paths for the multipath function, first design a load balanced system, and then
create the corresponding system design sheets.

Chapter 3 Notes
3.2 VMware ESX Operating Notes
3.2
VMware ESX Operating Notes
• Refer to the following web-site for the number of LUNs that VMware ESX can recognize.
http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/
• When Windows® is used on the Virtual Machine, the registry will need to be modified after Windows® is
installed. For details, refer to "Chapter 9 Virtual Machine" (page 48).
• ETERNUS Multipath Driver and GR Multipath Driver do not need to be installed on a VMware ESX Virtual
Machine. The multipath function of VMware ESX provides path redundancy.
3.3
ETERNUS DX Setup Notes
• When connecting a VMware ESX server to the ETERNUS DX, check that the firmware version is as specified
in the "Server Support Matrix".
• Assign Affinity Group values starting from LUN0 in ascending order. The server cannot recognize the ETERNUS DX LUNs if some other assignment order is used.
• When LUNs are shared among multiple physical servers (in a vMotion configuration, for example), an Affinity Group mapping should be used to ensure that each shared LUN is assigned the same LUN number
across every physical server.
• When connecting to VMware ESX with multiple paths sharing a single LUN, a Reset Group setting is required for the ETERNUS DX device.
• Details of dynamic recognition of LUNs added while VMware ESX is running are given in the "Chapter
10 Dynamic Recognition of LUNs Added While VMware ESX Is in Use" (page 50).
3.4
SAN Boot Notes
• ETERNUS DX storage systems support SAN Boot.
• VMware ESX calls SAN Boot to "Boot From a SAN". "Boot From a SAN" means to boot the VMware ESX server
from a Storage Area Network (SAN).
• Only set SAN Boot for supported Converged Network Adapter cards. For the Converged Network Adapter
card settings, refer to "FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX Configuration Guide -Server Connection- (FCoE) for
VMware® ESX" for the Converged Network Adapter cards to be used.

3.5 ETERNUS DX to VMware VCB Proxy Server (on Windows®) Connection Notes
3.5
ETERNUS DX to VMware VCB Proxy Server (on Windows®)
Connection Notes
When connecting a Windows®-based VMware VCB (VMware Consolidated Backup) Proxy server to an ETERNUS DX60, ETERNUS DX80 or ETERNUS DX400/DX8000 series, the VMware ESX shares the LUNs, and the
ETERNUS DX60, ETERNUS DX80, or ETERNUS DX400/DX8000 series settings must be adjusted.
For details on how to perform these settings, refer to the following documents:
• "FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX Configuration Guide -Server Connection- (Fibre Channel) ETERNUS DX60/
DX60 S2, DX80, DX90 Disk Storage System Settings"
• "FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX Configuration Guide -Server Connection- (Fibre Channel) ETERNUS DX400/
DX8000 series Disk Storage System Settings"
3.6
Server Startup and Power Supply Control Notes
Before turning the server on, check that the ETERNUS DX storage systems, Fibre Channel switches, and CEE/
FCoE switches are all "Ready". If the server is turned on and they are not "Ready", the server will not be able
to recognize the ETERNUS DX storage systems.
Also, when the ETERNUS DX power supply is being controlled by a connected server, make sure that the
ETERNUS DX does not shut down before the connected servers. Similarly, the Fibre Channel switches and the
CEE/FCoE switches must also be turned off after the connected servers have been shut down. If turned off,
data writes from the running server cannot be saved to the ETERNUS DX storage systems, and already saved
data may also be affected.
3.7
Notes on WWN Instance Management Table for the Server
The WWW instance management table for the server is a worksheet that helps make the process of installing
an ETERNUS DX easy.
It is important that the system details be recorded after first installing the system and also each time the
system is subsequently modified, expanded, or has maintenance work performed on it. Creating a WWN instance management table makes installation and maintenance of the system easy. WWN instance management table templates may be found in the "FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS DX Configuration Guide -Server Connection- (FCoE) for Windows Driver Settings" for the Converged Network Adapter card being used.
3.8
System Design Sheet Notes
The system design sheet is a spreadsheet program work sheet that is used to simplify the process of installing the ETERNUS DX. It is important that the system details be recorded after first installing the system and
also each time the system is subsequently modified, expanded, or has maintenance work performed on it.
Creating a system design sheet makes installation and maintenance of the system easy.
