I would like to know how to configure SAN storage using Microsoft.
I believe I would know how to configure one Windows 2008 Server as iSCSI Target and another Windows 2008 as iSCSI initiator then bring online the Virtual disk present by the target . This will make the VD look as local to the second windows 2008 server.
But if I want the same VD look as local disk to end users without visiting each workstation and run iSCSI initiator ( if there is even one on the client machine). How I would do that.

I thought about MAP drive script, but it does not sound like it will look as local drive to end users, if we check that through the disk management tool.

Any idea on how to configure SAN storage using Microsoft?
