1- Firstly : I wanted to give an iscsi disk from SVCGM_D to this computer.... I have created volumes on SVC , chosed IO Group 1 , Node SVC GM D for the volumes.
2- Then , i added IP of this SVC to the computer.
3- The computer see the SVC , and connected to SVC. But there is a problem about the disk recognition.
4- The computer can not discover the SVC  volume as a know type device.


Thank you.

does the volume/disk appear in Disk Management, when you rescan.

can you partition and format the LUN?

Which multipath software are you running?  What if you disable multipath access in the iSCSI configuration?

@hanccocka : I had already rescan the disks but could not see the disk. So i could not open a partition , nor format it.
@SelfGovern : I am trying to use MS MPIO , it works in my other computer , but not in this machine. I had uninstalled iSCSI initiator and installed without MPIO , it didnt work . Then i have reinstalled iscsi initiator with MPIO it didnt work eighter.

It has been fixed after done microsoft'e recomendetions.

1-) Uninstall iSCSI initiator
2-) Delete HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\control\class\{4D36E97B-E325-11CE...}    UPPERFILTERS=mpspfltr  value (Delete the value , not the keyword)
3-)  Reinstall the iSCSI initiator
