    Preventing Fibre Channel SAN Problems
    When using ESXi in conjunction with a Fibre Channel SAN, you must follow specific guidelines to avoid SAN problems.

    You should observe these tips for preventing problems with your SAN configuration:

    ■ Place only one VMFS datastore on each LUN.

    ■ Do not change the path policy the system sets for you unless you understand the implications of making such a change.
