I have been using OpenFiler as my iSCSI storage with much success for my mobile VM Lab. I wanted to test Storage DRS with vSphere 5.0, and I decided to give one of Nick Weaver’s VSAs a try.
unknown reason, I was having trouble importing the OVA file to VMware Workstation….until I stumbled on to Herbert’s Blog entry about VMware’s OVFTool.
Thanks for the help, Herbert! The VSA is successfully loading, and I look forward to an (hopefully) easier time testing Storage DRS. I’ll keep you guys posted on my progress.
