ESXi5 BL465c G1 PSOD when using embedded iSCSI BCM5706S NICs

[ Edited ]

PSOD when adding iSCSI target IP address to BL465c G1 iSCSI NIC

 

When adding iSCSI target IP address to BL465c G1 iSCSI NIC 0 (the first embedded NIC, it crases wth a PSOD!

 
I am even using the ISO installation image provided by the link here in the VMware site that is branded an HP version of the ESXi hypervisor.

 
I also ensure all my firmware and drivers were up to date.

 
attached is the PSOD...

 
What could be happening here?

Hi,

 

Try renaming the vmkiscsid.db file which is at /etc/vmware/vmkiscsid/vmkiscsid.db and reboot the host and configuring it again.

 

If the issues still exists, it could be a issue with network, cloud you brief on the network configuration.

 

Thanks,

Would you still suggest this considering that if I use the software initiator I have no difficulty reaching the storage target?

What does this file do?

Hi,

 

The file I had mentioned is the file which holds all the configuration details of the iSCSI on the host, so by renaming the file and rebooting you start configuring from the scratch.

 

Also on BL465c G1 server onboard NICs I doubt if by default iSCSI is supported, as there was an additional license to enable the same. (I am not sure on this part, but please check with product expert)

 

Thanks,

Jagadish
