NVMeoF with ESX 6.5

Hi, Does any one successfully created a NVMeoF target using a block device in ESX 6.5? If it is even supported? If so can you guide me to setup instructions.



you can use Esxi6.5 as an initiator (not as a target) for discover, mount and use LUNs over NVMEoF Storage protocol, for instance, when using nvmetcli

use the 2x articles that will guide you through the configuration
