Dell PowerVault 3000 / iSCSI virtual disks won't initialize due to "incorrect function"
Posted on 2012-08-13
I just loaded my Dell PowerVault 3000i with 7000 more GB of space and would like to use it. I can create virtual disks and link them to a disk group, but ONLY ONE virtual disk will initialize.
I keep getting a dialog pop-up from Logical Disk Manager that says, "Incorrect function."
It doesn't matter whether I make 2, 3, or 4 virtual disks, I can only initialize one or two the virtual disks.
LUN numbers are assigned started at 0 and are assigned 0 and 1 for two disks. 0, 1, and 2 for three disks and so on. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to which one or two volumes work. I just did a test of 4 volumes and the 2 and 4th virtual disks were okay, but the 1st and 3rd gave the "Incorrect function" error when I attempted to put them Online or Initialize them.
Restarting the VM doesn't help me at all.
