Our ESXi hosts have always been slow booting when it came to
iscsi_vmk loaded successfully - sitting here for almost 5 minutes.
In all a full server reboot takes almost 12 minutes.
We have 9 iSCSI targets per host (5 SANs with redundant interfaces) configured as
dynamic discovery targets.
Has anyone experienced this? Can it be remedied with
static discovery mode?
Are there any debug steps we can work through to help diagnose this?
(All our targets are accessible at boot so i'm assuming the host isn't stuck retrying to connect to a target)
