Hi Experts,

I have a storage from NETAPP -> FAS2552.
Is it possible to create a new volume and connect this volume with Windows server ?
And is it possible to connect to this volume via 2 or more servers ?

You can create new volumes.

If you want to add to Windows Server, you will need to add the storage as iSCSI, so you will have to create iSCSI LUNs on the NetApp filer and present to the server.

Usually, an iSCSI LUN, is a 1 to 1 mapping, it cannot be used concurrently with 2 or more servers, unless you use Failover Clustering, and then create Clustered Shared Storage. (CSV).

Assuming you have configured iSCSI Target on the SAN you can configure iSCSI initiator on Windows Server to connect to the Target.

is it possible to create also LUNs on a NETAPP ?
On my NETAPP I just can choose NAS for CIFS and NFS.

Do you have an iSCSI License ?

NetApp it's possible to provision iSCSI, FC, NFS and CIFS, if you have the licenses.

Yes I have this license but it is not enabled.

Can I use more protocols concurrent ?
Can you show me how to enable ISCSI with destroying existing volumes ?

You can use NFS, iSCSI, CIFS and FC concurrently.

The quickest and easiest method is to install Virtual Storage Console, this interfaces with vCenter Server, and deploys the Volume/LUN, and connects the ESXi server to the NetApp server.

It's available from NOW.
