i Hope this find you all fine
Please i need help, i have IBM DS3524 Dual Controller with 4 ISCSI Duaghter Por, and IBM System x 3560 with Windows 2008 R2
My Scenario i must connect the Windows Server with 2 ISCSI Connection to each port per Controller as the following:
IBM Windows Server: Giga port 1 ===> ISCSI port 1 Controller A
Giga Port 2 ===> ISCSI port 1 Controller B
Now Ofcourse each ISCSI port is on different Subnet
My Question as the following:
1) I should add each Subnet in the "ISCSI Initiator" or the Windows will Discover that?
2) Windows Server will work automatic if the Controller A is down, it will take the path thru Controller B ? or there should be any additional Configuration??
3) as Best practice, connect the Server directly to the SAN, and take a connection from the server to the switch so other clients can access the Resources??
Thanks alot and i wish someone can help me with that with too many thanks
