Dynamic disks aren't supported on iSCSI for exactly the reason you describe - http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/c/e/6ce0d64f-0d7e-4c10-927a-17698b117dab/relnotes.txt - "If you do attempt to setup a dynamic disk on an iSCSI volume,  after logging into the target you may have to manually go into the disk manager and reactivate the disk."

Dynamic disks are never a good idea especially on a SAN. There's really no need for them especially now we have GPT partitions for large volume support.
