You must add iSER adapter on ESXi console, not a software iSCSI adapter.
If you execute esxcli rdma iser add command then you will see a iSER adapter.
But if you reboot ESXi host iSER adapter will disappear...
Therefore you should be add a esxcli rdma iser add to /etc/rc.local.d/local.sh
I'm also test with my SCST iSER Target, but fail to connect to iSER Target
My Friend also test with LIO Target, StarWind iSER Target, but everytime failed to connect to iSER Target.
My friend use iSER with 126.96.36.199 for ESXi 6.0 driver - that support only ESXi 6.0 - on ESXi 6.0 host successfully.
I think this iSER driver 188.8.131.52 for ESXi 6.5 is a beta level addon module...:(
Thanks Jae-Hoon !
I can now see the iSER adapters.
Will try to hook the host to some iSER targets later and post the results here.
I hope it can work with the switch ports configured with PFC instead of Global Pause.
We're on the same boat.
I want to use PFC based iSER on ESXi 6.5 environment.
Here are some therads.
Good luck to like us who want to use iSER on ESXi 6.5.
any luck seeing the iser target? i am pretty much where you guys are, i have the adapter but cannot see the target.
Unfortunately answer is no!
But my friend said to me a info some works in advanced.
He test with StarWind vSAN iSER Target and ESXi 6.5 iSER initiator (184.108.40.206) connect to iSER Target.
He test with RoCE v1.0, 1.2x, 2.0.
In near future, I'll test what RoCE version is support with ESXi 6.5 iSER 220.127.116.11 driver.
