I have Dell PowerEdge Server R710 on which I installed ESXi. I also have a storage array, Dell EqulLogic PS4100. I would like to use my array as the storage only, I mean, using ESXi with vCenter Client I would like to create some virtual machines on my storage.
My question is: should I install some OS on my Dell EqualLogic? Or I can simply treat it as a regular HDD, and create VMFS on it? Im a little bit confused with all this, please, help.
Does EqualLogic need some setup and configuration or can I just use it out of the box? How can I configure EqalLogic IP addres in order to be able to use it via the net?
