I have two Windows 2003 servers which are currently connected via single NIC iSCSI connections per server to a 1000BaseT swtich. The servers are clustered and use a Promise Vtrack M310i as shared storage with MS iSCSI Initiator.
Here is the issue: There is no multipath. Each server has only a single NIC connection. Additionally the servers are only pointed at port 1 of the two ethernet port M310i.
I have added a second NIC in each server and now want to to use MPIO( which seems to already be installed for the MS iSCSI initiator. I have read the MS user guide for their initiator. Here are my questions:
1. How do I check the version of MS iSCSI initiator installed?
2. I assume I can simply move all cluster groups to one server and then pause a server and define an MPIO path.
3. I assume the MS Cluster service identifies a volume by it's disk signature and not the iSCSI path.
4. Anyone have a walkthrough or know of any issues I should watch out for?
