    Accepted Solution

    Dynamic disks aren't supported on iSCSI for exactly the reason you describe - - "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.
