I have running a Server 2003 with the Microsoft ISCSI Initiator. I mapped an ISCSI-Volume and after the restart of the server, the the folders aren't shared anymore. The NTFS-rights are still rigth and the drive letter does not change. Any idea?

Thanks, cyntaxx

Please reference the MS KB regarding this issues:


Make the Server service dependent on the iSCSI Initiator service. For information about how to do this, see the "Make the Server service dependent on the iSCSI Initiator service" section

And in your iSCSI initiator enable persistent binding if you haven't done so already. – Helvick Jul 24 '09 at 20:42

May be your iSCSI target has some problem, I'm using KernSafe iSCSI Target for a half year, without this problem. You can find it at: It is free.
