Dell ME5 with XCP-ng


I’m trying to find out if I’m the only one out there using Dell ME5 iSCSI storage with XCP-ng.
I have problem with multipath not working even with one host connecting to storage.
Would be nice if someone else is using it so I could compare config.


Welcome to the forums, I don’t use one or have any clients using it either. We generally replace Dell systems (usually older models) with TrueNAS ones. Hope someone has some suggestions.

We are using this now. The multpath is ok.
What’s happening there? Have you achieved it yet?

We use a Dell ME5024 with VMware in prod. I will be interested to see how this turns out as I am actively investigating if XCP-ng is a good fit.

I ended up putting switch between servers and ME5024 and its been working fine.
However, on XCP-ng forum someone else had same issue as me with DAS and they seemed to figured it out.

Good to know. We already have a switch and Multipath setup for VMWare. So, I’m guessing that XCP-ng should not have a problem with our environment.
I’m modeling this in POC but only have one iSCSI switch and NIC setup. So no multipath.
