So I have been playing with ESX 4.0 and am using Openfiler for it’s SAN. Best part is, it’s free and it is very simple to setup.
There are a few things here and there that need some work but you can find a work around for it most of the time.
Well I installed the OpenFiler from scratch and set it up with DHCP, this because I was not sure about the IP-address schema I wanted to use and it is just easier. When I was ready to set up the IP I ran into some issues, I could not change it from DHCP to Static. Seems to be bug in OpenFiler.
Here is now to fix it:
Search for and modify command "sudo /bin/grep \"eth\" /var/log/dmesg" with the command "sudo ifconfig -a | grep ‘eth’"
