Im just looking @ the new Hyper V server, have installed it onto a spare server. Have got the Hyper V Manger installed on my Windows 8 tab. But cant see how to add storage?

I dont see how how to add iSCSI targets.

Is it just me or it is a bit crap and unintuitive compared to VMWare??

So what it's saying is that you need to add the storage pool to the server and then use Hyper V Manager?

It's a very different concept to VMware ESX/ESXi, because you have to present the LUNs to the OS first using Software iSCSI Initiator.

To attach an iSCSI lun, you use the iSCSI initiator.

OK got it.

Log into the Hyper V server. Run iscsicpl.exe, gives you an applet and you can work it out from there.

As for any segregating NICs or NIC teaming. any kind of meaning full host configuration I have no idea!

I know its free and all, but its a bit of a fail compared to VMWare @ this point.

You would normally use Multipath (MPIO) with iSCSI, rather than teaming.

But you can Team with two NICS, in Windows 2012, Click the Teaming Task.
