Can you just attach to the LUN using the iSCSI initiator? Can you then just use Disk Management to initialize and format the volume? I personally don't use the Microsoft SAN integration tools.

Sorted the issue myself

changed the controller host to the same host as the first configured logical drive within the RAID.

Thanks
