we set up a backup server (Win2k8 r2) for our VMware infrastructure which uses an iSCSI SAN for storage. The backup server has to be connected to the SAN for Veeam to be able to backup virtual machines. The SAN provides 18 targets, all of the same size (1TB).
All initiators (ESX, Win2k3r2, Win2k8r2) are connecting fine, but the volume manager of Win2k8r2 only shows part of the targets/volumes. For example: we connect Win 2k8r2 to all 18 targets, the targets show as "connected" in Microsoft initiator, but volume manager only shows 8 of the targets. For comparison: the volume manager of Win2k3r2 behaves normal and produces one volume for every connected target.
Restarting iSCSI initiator service or rebooting the machine did not help.
Thanks a lot for any ideas!
