Hi
I have a MSA 2012i which uses iSCSi, but for now I just want to share the volumes I have created so that other servers can map a drive via UNC paths.  HP haven't been that helpful, saying yes ypu should be able to do this in SMU.  Well I cand find this, so I wonder if anyone else has been able to do this and how.
I will use iSCSi but I'm waiting for the iSCSi controller for the blade server that isn't going to be with us for a few more days!

Many thanks

No. You would have to buy an addditional server to act as an iSCSI to NAS head for it.
