New VMware user here, setting up my first environment. I have an ESXi host that has four physical NiCs (NiC0, NiC1, NiC2, NiC3).
I have installed ESXi, the VCVA appliance, and several VMs successfully. They are connected to the local storage currently, but I want to connect to our iSCSI SAN.
Physically NiC0 and NiC1 are connected to our regular network switch. NiC2 and NiC3 are connected to our iSCSI network, which is a separate network. So what I have done is set NiC0 and NiC1 as active for the management network on the ESXi host. I left NiC2 and NiC3 unchecked.
When I use the vSphere client to create the iSCSI connection, it can't see NiC2 or NiC3. Do I need to enable all four NiCs to be able to use them in vSphere?
If I enable NiC2 and NiC3, they say they are disconnected, because they are connected to our iSCSI network and have no regular network connection.
Am I way off track here?
