I have 2 volumes on my NAS, one is configured as D:\ drive on my windows 2008 R2 server. I have set up another ISCSI lun on the Nas (same as the other) using the second volume.

On the 2008 server I can connect to the target using the ISCSI Initiator. Here I get stuck, how do I configure this as drive 'F:\' on the server?

Once you attach to an iSCSI target, it'll be in disk manager like any other disk. And, as with most disks, it is initially blank, bot even formatted with NTFS or other file system. So in disk manager, initialize it, format it, and during formatting you can select a drive letter.

That's very helpful, thanks. I now have to work out why the new volume is only 10GB instead of the 3TB I set up on the NAS!

In the end I deleted the volume on the NAS and just had one volume.

Thanks for the help
