Hey experts,
I have a customer who has a SBS 2008 server.  They are running it on a HyperV server which does not have USB passthrough so we do not have the option for external hard drives.  We are going to use IOMEGA IX2-200 NAS drives using iSCSI.  My question is,  Is there a way we can get them to auto mount.  This is a real small company and very simple minded people when it comes to computers.  So we would like to be able to just unhook the drive and hook up a new one to the network and have it auto mount. in the SBS2008.  Does all this sound possible or is it a bad idea to just inhook the iSCSI drive from the network.

I haven't worked with this target device, but in the Windows iSCSI configuration applet, there is a setting to make the targets persistent.   Once that is done, I would think all you have to do is ensure that the iSCSI target has the same IP address from one time to the next.

Is the disk on the SBS Server basic or dynamic?
