Dear EE's

I am having a hyper-v cluster with 2 nodes and a san storage. after creation of cluster i cant use iscsi target in a single node alone. then i realize that it make due to cluster role.

Requirement as mentioned below.

My nodes got 1TB (Node1) and 1TB (Node2) free space. I am having a though of using that space attached to a vm.
Through Server manager -> Iscsi its not poping out server (becasue i think the node is clustered)

When i tried to created sever role inside failover cluster manager i need assign Storage from SAN and can created Virtual disks inside that SAN storage which attached, but i planning use the space in the nodes.

Please be kind to provide me advises, suggestions and ideas.

Thank you

Shamil

Dear Bro,

I am not asking how to create clsuter.. I have already a cluster.. But there is used disk in the nodes. I wanna use that disk to map to another vm through iscsi.

As this node is part of cluster its not allowing to create iscsi target inside node, which allows only to create inside cluster and in cluster storage as well.

In this case i can third party software 'StarWind' to generate iscsi target. But i tryin created OS based iscsi target server role.


Thank you.

as far as I knowtThere are no dedicated virtual iSCSI adapters in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V,

which means a Hyper-V virtual machine cannot boot from an iSCSI disk.

 However, a virtual machine can use ordinary virtual network adapters that are bound to the VLANs of the SAN to connect to iSCSI disks. This offers the same benefits as Fiber Channel Adapters.

In case you just want to use Extra Storage on the running VM you might download and install ISCSI software target

Dear bro,

we are still standing on different topics.

I wanna map unused disk space through iscsi to a virtual machine. But my problem is i couldnt map free disk space though iscsi (Which is a node of cluster).
