Using Hardware iSCSI Initiators with ESX/ESXi hosts allows which of the following tasks to be offloaded from the VMkernel (Choose Two)?
Encapsulation of I/O requests into iSCSI Protocol Data Units (PDUs)
Mapping requests for blocks on the virtual disk to blocks on the appropriate physical device
Encapsulation of iSCSI PDUs into TCP/IP packets
Issuing SCSI commands to the virtual disk
iSCSI SAN Configuration Guide ESX ESXi vCenter Server, page 19.
If the iSCSI initiator is a hardware iSCSI initiator (iSCSI HBA), the HBA performs the following tasks.
Encapsulates I/O requests into iSCSI Protocol Data Units (PDUs). [A above]
Encapsulates PDUs into TCP/IP packets. [C above]
Sends IP packets over Ethernet to the iSCSI storage system.
