Tell the world:

Ever get the error message VMotion and IP Storage Has Not Been Enabled when trying to configure the ESX software iSCSI initiator? How about Error during the configuration of the host: Please make sure you have configured networking for VMkernel when attempting to configure an NFS share?Chances are you have not yet configured your VMkernel interface on your ESX host, which is required for IP Storage (iSCSI and NFS), as well as for live migration of VMs via VMotion. In this video we discuss the architecture of the VMkernel on an ESX 3.5 host, as well as VMkernel communications on ESX3i Embedded and ESX3i Installable hosts.This video includes a walk-through for the installation of the VMkernel port on an ESX 3.5 U3 host.
