Windows 2008 iSCSI stuck in Reconnecting... after upgrade from 2003

I upgraded my backup server from Windows 2003R2 to Windows 2008 Standard (32bit) in place. Seemed to go OK except for a few security items. However, now all my iSCSI connections to my SAN are stuck in Reconnecting...and I can't backup my VMs on the SAN...ideas? Found a KB talking about a hot fix, but no luck (970658). Thanks.

yikes...just found this:

My exact issue, and seems like there is no solution...anyone find a fix since then? Really don't want to re-install the server fresh.

did you try to uninstall iSCSI initiator and install again and verify if that fixed the issue.

one more thing, did you try adding a new target and verify if that is working or if any connection created old or new have the same issue.

I removed and re added targets with no luck. you can't seem to uninstall the initiator from 2008, others have made that comment.

Event ID: 113
Level: Warning
Msg:  iSCSI discovery via SendTargets failed with error code 0xefff0012 to target portal

Turns out I had to do a clean install of Windows after all. iSCSI worked fine after that. Thanks for everyone's help.
