i have a host server which is connected to my san via iSCSI. which can see all 3 partitions.
the ips of the host server is:
Lan: 192.168.0.XXX
iSCSI: 192.168.130.XXX
heartbeat for cluster failover is: 10.10.10.X

now how do i get my vm (windows 2008 standard ) in hyper-v to see one of the partitions on the san? i need to create a new iSCSI adapter with the ip of 192.168.130.XXx

thanks

You need to create a new external virtual network and connect it to the NIC on the parent that is attached to the iSCSI SAN. Make sure that you allow the management partition to have access (it is allowed by default). Then shut down your VM, go to settings and add a new NIC and connect that NIC to the iSCSI virtual network. Reboot the VM.

the host has all 3 network adapters. only my vm has the lan adapter. see attach.
the top left window is my host. the bottom middle is the vm and the left is the hyper-v console. notice my vm doesnt have anothe connection.

so i need to go to the settings on my vm and add another network adapter? if so, it doesnt let me. or do i add another scsi controller? screenshot screenshot

does it matter that my iSCSI and heartbeat network is classified as an "unidentied network" ?
when i go to the setting under the VM, the network adapter doesnt promt me to add.

The unidentified network is because those network connections can't talk to the Internet or probably your domain controller.

The network connections need to be modified using the Hyper-V Manager. You need to create the same virtual network on all hosts in the cluster. You add the network adapter in the VM settings once you have shut down the VM. Since you are using clustering, made the VM changes using the Cluster Manager, not Hyper-V Manager.
