Nested vSphere 5 Home Lab – Setting up Shared Storage on SuSE (SLES11)

Using SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 for shared NFS and iSCSI storage for testing/learning purposes.


Andy Fox | 5 July 2012

Using SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 for shared NFS and iSCSI storage for testing/learning purposes.

Over the years teaching vSphere, several peers, colleagues and students have asked me how I setup shared storage in my nested test environment. Being a Novell instructor teaching SuSE Linux. for me this was the obvious choice. However, most of my colleagues and students are not familiar with Linux, so I have decided to put together a procedure detailing the steps necessary to configure your own shared storage.

You will need:

VMware Workstation 8 / Player 4

SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11

Due to the length of the instructions (plus loads of screen grabs), I decided to make a PDF available, Enjoy!
