Hi All

        i tried to connect this NAS device,but when i input the IP Address in iscsi initiator, it can not found the device. i can ping NAS IP from this server successfully.
        if i setup than 2T NAS device, it is working
        how can i use more than 2T NAS device via ISCSI in windows 2008 R2?

    You need to format the disk in Windows server 2008 as GPT disk instead of MBR to address more than 2 TB disks.
