I'm using Vmware-Server (not ESX, just the free one).

The guests themselves (the disk where the OS is installed) are stored as 
vmdk's on a local folder.

I want to provide application storage for each virtual machine, no 
shared storage. I have 1.6TB total capacity, and plan on giving each 
guest as much raid-5 storage space as they need.

The iscsiadm discovery on my Host reports all available targets, over 
both interfaces (broadcom and intel).

So, basicly, I have these doubts / options:

1) Login to each target on the host, and add raw disk access to the 
guests to those host-devices.
2) Don't use open-iscsi on the host, but use it on each guest to connect 
to the targets.

And the main doubt: how does link aggregation / dualpath fit into those 
options?
 
Also, i find this error:

I'm using crossover cables.
