I have a iscsi connection made in the Iscsi Initiation in Windows 2008 R2 that connects to a LUN of a Synology device.

In these LUN i have sql databases.

My problem is that all morning the ISCSI connection is disconnected in these particular server.

I have another server with the same configuations but connected to a differet LUN and it is working fine without problems.

I tried everything that I can find in the internet but the issue continues...

Regards
Joel

can u give me a clue? I checked all and couldnt find anything.
Commented:
OK. Please check the Application but mostly the System Logs.
Check for any Warnings and/or Errors in these two Logs. Are there any during the night?

Commented:
the only error that I have in the event viewer is the sql server error because of the missing drive with the dbs

Commented:
Is this a physical server or virtual? Does it use a specific card for iSCSI or does it share the NIC?

Hi, any news?

Commented:
Sorry for the delay. Will be back in about 6 hours.

Commented:
OK.

Commented:
Please consider updating the NIC driver to version "4.7.29.1101 (18 Feb 2014)".
You can download the driver from this link. Let me know how it runs.

Commented:
it didnt help, because my windows version is 64bits. and the driver for 64 bits is the one that I have running in server.

Commented:
I think you didn't even try because the link points to the 64bit driver. I gave you a suggestion: it is up to you to consider it or not.
So your reply to my suggestion might be:
a. I will consider updating, or
b. I refuse to consider updating.

The reply you gave me, AFAIK, isn't applicable because the driver is 64bit.
Please reply. Thank you.
