I have a VMware machine, Server 2003 that is set up iSCSI to our IBM DS3300 storage with 2 controllers. It was setup by consultants who put the system in place, so I don't really know how or what they set up, so I'm looking for as close to step-by-step instructions as possible: Simply, we are decomissioning the Server 2003 machine (was never active), and want to install new Server 2008R2, and connect to the SCSI drives as setup in Server 2003, to make it our new File Server. The IBM Storage Manager 2 was used to set up the hosts and drive mappings.
Do I just copy the settings to the new 2008 Server? I don't have any space to create a new virtual machine and keep both the 2003 and 2008 server images, so I need to get all the settings from 2003, wipe it, and install new 2008 build.
The current settings are as follows:
In the DS3300 Setup- Configured Host NTFSFILE with iSCSI Initiataor Name iqn.1991.05.com.micrsoft:ntfsfile and Host type as Windows 2000/Server 2003/Server 2008 Non-Clustered (supports DMP) thats 750GB. (Let me know if you need any other settings from the Storage Manager)
On the Server we have:
2 Network Connections:
1 - VMware Accelerated AMD PCNet Adapter 172.16.100.60/24 - Labeled as ISCSI A
2 - VMware Accelerated AMD PCNet Adapter #2 172.16.101.60/24 - labeled as ISCSI B

1 persistent target, same as above.
Ok, so now that I've given all possible information I can think of, just need to know how to best proceed in setting this identical connection up on the Server 2008R2, as well as anything that needs to be disconnected or removed on 2003 when decommissioning this server. I'm not not really concerned with data loss on this drive, as there is nothing to important on here, I just would like the 2008R2 server to be connected to this 750GB drive.
Thank you in advance!
