In the field provided, enter a Host Friendly Name for the host. In this example, the first initiator is esxi05.
Using the drop-down menu, select the operating system and click NEXT.
Select the Protocol Type as NVMe and then click NEXT. The initiators are automatically discovered.
Note: If PowerStore 3.0 displays a warning that no initiators were auto-discovered. Ignore this warning and click next to see auto-discovered initiators.
Select the initiator for the new host. In this example, esxi05 only is used.
Note: Add one initiator per host instance. In this example, the host initiators for hosts esxi05 through esxi08 are listed since the controllers were added to the NVMe/TCP storage adapters on the ESXi host esxi05 through esxi08 and were automatically discovered.
Review the host details and click the ADD HOST button.
Note: Both of the host NVMe/TCP IP addresses are listed as the host can access storage using SAN A and SAN B.
Observe the host in Hosts & Host Groups.
Repeat the steps in this section to add more hosts. In this example, esxi06, esxi07, and esxi08 are added. The following image shows all four hosts.
