Does Windows Server 2008 support iSCSI? If yes, how to configure Windows Server 2008 to connect to an iSCSI disk? Does Windows Server 2008 supports all kinds/models of iSCSI or some specific kinds/models of iSCSI?
thanks in advance, George
Yes. iSCSI is a standard, so there's no real limitation on any brand that it will or won't support. If it's iSCSI, most likely you can use it. Keep in mind that there is a good bit of difference in configuration between brands - I've found EMC, for example, to be very easy to configure (though it does require a piece of software be installed on the OS). LeftHand is a bit more tedious, but it will work with the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator without additional software. (The EMC software is what makes it easy).
You'll find the iSCSI initiator under Administrative Tools. You'll probably need the WWN in order to add the server to the iSCSI permissions on whatever SAN you are using, so that's about as far as I can go without knowing additional details.
