Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In the next few weeks we're doing a new VMWare/vSphere deployment, but the server that's been set aside for the vSphere server does not have access to the SAN that the VMWare blades will be using.

Is this a problem?

The VirtualCenter? Not an issue. It'll obtain SAN information via the hosts. The only non-ESX/ESXi box you might want to access your SAN is your backup host, if it's got a direct SAN backup option.

That's the one. Thanks. –  Mark Henderson Feb 1 '11 at 2:21
