Is there possible to enable iSER on OmniOS? I was able to get standard iSCSI working with ESXi, but no luck with iSER. What's the best way to create an iSER target? (if needed)

I tried a fresh install with Solaris 11.3 using ConnectX3 VPI connect to a 40Gbe switch, it shows IB as connection instead of ethernet. Same result with OmniOS.
Is there a way to change the ConnectX3 VPI to ethernet? It works fine in Windows OS.
Thanks in advance!
Due to hardware issues, I had to move everything to a different system. Same model server, and move all HBA, NICs to the new server with the same PCI-E slot.
After import the pool everything is back online except LU shows unregistered.
I tried to run stmfadm import-lu, it shows meta file...
Just updated TD340 to the latest BIOS web console. System won't boot after that. It does power on and I am able to access IPMI console, but that's it.
Tried Lenovo BIOS recovery procedure without any luck. Any suggestions?
A great entry lab server. Much better configuration than the Lenovo ThinkServer TD340 $449 we had in the early summer https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/lenovo-thinkserver-td340-449.5760/
The spec is not very accurate on newegg. The server has 8 x DIMM for DDR4.
This is a pool with 4 mirror of 450 GB 15K SAS drives. The log device is a SLC Fusion-IO card. I am impressed by 636MB/s. How's everyone else log's performance?

Some notes from VMworld. vRDMA is give VM the ability to utilize RDMA function. Unlike single root I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) which pass the entire card to a single VM. This feature will allow multiple VMs to share the same NIC/HCA.
This is definitely a step forward from VMware on high...

I have been try to make subnet manager to work with vSphere vLAN for a while but did not have much luck until couple month ago. There is not many good documentation out there and I saw quite a few people have the same issue as I had. I like to share my 2 cents here to get people started.
