    We are also interested in VMWare ESX(i) 5.
    Will you be shortly certified for VMWare ESX(i) 5? That'd be great. Already have customers asking about it.

    Has anyone used DSS v6 with ESX(i) 5?

    Thanks, again...

    We are currently using it in production. Initially it had a major issue with rebooting, as the iscsi stack would cause the system to hang for a LONG time when booting. However, VMWare has issued a patch that resolved that problem. So long as you apply the patch it seems to work just fine. Though how it handles MPIO is somewhat different than before.

    Oh, and we DID have trouble with a version of Open-E that was 3 versions old not working with the iSCSI. This was easily resolved by updating to the latest version though.

    Sure thing. The patch is here:

    It resolves the slow boot issue. Other than that I haven't noticed any other issues thus far .
