I am trying to configure 3 Virtual Machine, all are window server 2016. One as an initiator while 2 others act as targets. Is there a way to automatically connect to the other target when the first target suddenly become unavailable (without rebooting) through iSCSI initiator?

Thanks a lot


It's called MPIO: you connect to all targets and as long as there's one path working the storage stays up.

You need to install the Multipath I/O feature and set the storage to use MPIO in the MPIO control panel.

[edit] In MPIO you can configure the path strategy: least queue depth, round robin, only failover, ... Open Disk Management and edit the disk properties.
