Hi,I am testing booting a server from iSCSI. I have everything working except I cannot get the ibft0 port to bond with another port to give me network redundancy. So if I drop the sin... [by sargenthp]
This question is a follow-on from Dedicated NIC or dedicated port for iSCSI?
Excluding the hardware iSCSI initiator point that was made in the accepted answer to the above question, it seems that using separate port(s) on a multi-port NIC for iSCSI is pretty much going to meet the recommendation of using "seperate NICs" for iSCSI traffic.
I'm in the process of planning a small iSCSI installation
When spec'ing and configuring a machine that will utilise shared iSCSI storage, I've read a lot of documentation which suggests a dedicated network adapter should be used for iSCSI communication. That makes a lot of sense and I have no problem with it.
Why can I not have a purely virtualized SAN in vSphere 5? I cannot enable the iSCSI port binding option (it is greyed out and unchecked) or add the VMkernel to the iSCSI software host bus adapter unless there is a physical NIC associated with the vSwitch.
I wanted to configure new iscsi port on HPUX system, i added the target port address and configured it, once done, went to array side and searched for that host iqn number , but was nt able to find the same, came to host, then when i ran "iscsiutil -pVS" command it gave me below result
I have Windows Server 2008 R2 running on Amazon EC2 with attached elastic IP. All ports in a security group are open but only to my IP-address.
I have succesfully set up Microsoft iSCSI Target 3.3 there.
I don't know if I'm missing something but when I'm mounting additional iSCSI volumes to a said server to add additional storage to a server I'm not seeing a way to mount the volume after running a discovery command.
The reasoning I want to be able to do this is that we're running an application that would require downtime everytime we add additional iSCSI volumes to this server.
