How to connect Windows Server 2008 to an EMC CX3-10
Posted on 2008-11-04
I need to get 4 servers (will be 2 SQL clusters) connected to my SAN (EMC CX3-10c /NS20). I have added a new DAE, created Raid groups, created storage groups, carved luns and added them to the storage groups via Navisphere. On the Windows Server 2008 Ent box I am not sure what I need to do. Looking at the EMC docs and what they tech support sent me, I need the iSCSI initiator, something with MPIO, and Powerpath iSCSI. I've done this (well apparently not) but in Navispere, when I open the storage group and select connect host...the dialog box that opens sees nothing...just a blank box. Any guidance on the steps needed to connect a 2008 server to the SAN would be appreciated. I have scheduled a FLARE upgrade for later in the week just in case its code related.
