Create a LUN on the FC disk array and map the LUN to the initiator (host), that is, map the LUN to the MZ220 WWN. Then ESXi can detect the LUN of the FC disk array. Disk resources are allocated by the hypervisor to VMs.

Right-click vmhba4, and choose Rescan from the shortcut menu. The mounted LUNs are detected, as shown in Figure 5-6.
