Pinned topic Which VMware Host Type for DS3500?

‏2012-11-14T14:07:25Z |
I have the following setup for a VMware ESXi 5.1.0 Cluster.

(2) IBM x3650 M4 Servers with (2) IBM 6Gbps SAS HBAs
IBM DS3524 with Dual SAS Controllers
The servers are direct-attached to the SAN

When choosing my Host Type on the SAN, I'm presented with two choices for VMware, VMWARE and VMWareTPGSALUA. Which one should I be choosing? Are there any other tweaks I should be making to this SAN for this setup? Any scripts that need to be run?

Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hi Project951,

    i have an identical setup and was also wandering about this.
    did you get any response from IBM so far ?

    I choose VMWareTPGSALUA.
    I must say that the speed on the vm's when eg selecting a disk in windows (c: or d:) is not what I expected.
    There is some latency (seems like system is searching its way to the storage).
    i will test with regular vmware.

    bye for now
