We've had two iSCSI targets, a SCALE device and a Drobo, attached to a Windows Server 2008R2 and mounted as drives for a while.
Once or twice in the past, the volumes disappeared, perhaps after WindowsSecurity Updates were applied. Disconnecting the targets from iSCSI Initiator, then rebooting the machine seemed to fix things; the volumes would reappear with previously assigned drive letter, and operations would resume.
The volumes\attached drive letters disappeared from the server yesterday, presumably after Windows Security Updates were applied. Unfortunately, they did not reappear after disconnecting them from the iSCSI Initiator, and a server reboot.
The targets appear in the iSCSI Initiator window as "Connected", but the volumes will not mount.
In Drobo Dashboard, the volume appears as mounted, but we are not able to assign it as a drive letter.
We tried one of the suggested resolutions on this site to make the Server service dependent on the iSCSI service, but that did not seem to work. Thanks in advance for any assistance you might be able to provide.
