Hej everyone.

I have a Dell storage array i want to use with nutanix, and install iSCSI disks on nutanix so that i can boot server VMs that is stored on the volumes.
I have tried more or less everything now, and just can figure out how to do it.

There is a lot of guide on how to share the Nutanix Disks witch iSCSI, but nothing on using iSCSI san as a VM drive in Nutanix.

Please advise. Has anyone done this and if so, how?

It should be possible to configure it if would be esxi hosts, but is it supportable?

If you are using esxi as a hypervisor.you can assign a lun through ISCSI.But incase if it is AHV,there is no way to configure external storage .Also not sure about with the latest release.
Not at the Hypervisor Level. If you do it so, it is not Hyperconvergence anymore... It's appliance, SAN and Storage... :)

You can make use of it in the VM OS Level, where you will do the iSCSI discovery LUNs.
