This update has broken iSCSI to my VMWare ESX 4.0 servers.... anyone else having this problem? I can no longer see my iSCSI luns from ESX4.

@Matthew -

The iSCSI stack has changed significantly in this release and requires a one-time transition process to leverage the new model. For more information see:

If you've already gone through this process and are still having problems, please open a support case with Sun.

Keith's article on "Faster cluster takeover time" to which you've linked is very interesting as we've got a system similar to the one he describes. But we've seen a regression in failover time, now two hours, due to the ak:/nas/pool-0 import. Any ideas why that is happening?
