I am running Windows Server 2008 R2 64 Bit, I am getting ready to setup a couple of ISCSi connections. From what I can see 2008 comes with iSCSI Initiator built in but I see that there is a download for Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator Version 2.08 witch one should I be using ?


Thanks

Microsoft says to use the built in,

"The Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator enables connection of a Windows host to an external iSCSI storage array using Ethernet NICs. This download can be installed on Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000. For Vista and Windows Server 2008, the iSCSI initiator is included inbox. The Microsoft iSCSI software initiator makes it possible for businesses to take advantage of existing network infrastructure to enable block-based Storage Area Networks without having to invest in additional hardware. "
