This is a hypothetical scenario for my college project.
I am wondering what way to physically connect a VMWare ESXi 5 server to a SAN server.
In my scenario both computers have gigabit NIC's using CAT6 cable, the type of communication will be iSCSI.
Can my ESXi server directly connect to my SAN using a crossover cable? Or does my SAN need to connect to my network switch via a straight through cable?
Thanks for any help!
