XenServer is widely used in combination with DataCore Software at several customer installations. In previous releases it was a bit tricky to get a working iSCSI storage connection with DataCore.

The reasons for this are

a) DataCore uses a unique IQN per iSCSI target

b) DataCore requires an iSCSI connection to serve LUNs to hosts

To make this process more transparent find below a short documentation about how XenServer 6.0.2 can be integrated with SAN Symphony-V. Be aware that this documentation has been created in context of a specific project and is not an official Citrix recommendation.

Happy reading! Feedback is welcome!
