Does anyone have any experience with VMware and LUSE LUNs on the NSC or USP?

Apparently, although not documented anywhere, LUSE volumes DO NOT work with VMWare. Something about the time taken to reserve and release SCSI locks/reservations on each individual LU contained within the LUSE.

We have experienced serious VMWare corruptions, lockups, timeouts and failed virtual machine migrations and V-motioning with the use of LUSE LUNs.

We are not very happy with the lack of support and knowledge around a best practice storage configuration with this environment.

Any thoughts/suggestions?
