I have multiple ESXi hosts, managed individually because I have yet to buy licensing. Can I tie my iSCSI SAN to these hosts and utilize it for VM storage and run VM's on that iSCSI device?

Yes, an iSCSI datastore can be added with just the free hypervisor license.

Sweet, thank you. Can this be added to more than one hypervisor at once? –  eth0 Dec 28 '12 at 1:27

@eth0 - As far as I know, yes. –  joeqwerty Dec 28 '12 at 1:29

Yep. This is entirely possible.

The thing you lose by not having licensing is the vCenter management. However, that has no impact on your ability to see datastores (iSCSI or otherwise).
