Migrate Iscsi Targets to newer server

Hello,

I have a bunch of PowerVaults MD1000 connected over SAS to a Dell server that needs to be replaced. This server presents the specified drive space to a couple of VM hosts(Hyper-V) over ISCSI.  To make the matter a little more complicated, most VMs have two or more drives. For example the C:\ drive gets the space from the VM host, while drive D:\ gets the space directly from the PowerVault through ISCSI.  My question is, how do I replace this server and make sure the VMs will see those ISCSI targets when the new server will be brought up?


Thank you!

Just connect and add the IP Address of the MD1000 to the iSCSI initiator on the new server.

and make sure the IQN of this new server, is copied and pasted into the correct Access panel for the LUNs, otherwise your new server will not detects the LUNs.
