Windows 2012 R2 iSCSI Target

I create three large volume on my 2012 R2 server. Each volume is ~3TB. When I create the vDisk I set it to fixed and use all space. For example it the volume was 3.04TB I made the vdisk 3.04TB. Now windows states the volumes are low on diskpace since the vdisk it the size of the volume. Is this ok to set it up like this?

Yes.  This is normal.  As long as you don't send anything (including paging and system files/recyclebin) to write to that disk, you won't have any issues.

Hi,

you speak about which vdisk ? In your San configuration? If yes which type of San is it please?
I cannot really answer as I don't understand the situation for the moment.
But if you have San alert on a LUN because you fill it up with windows partition (or other), it could be normal and you just have to disable the San alert if your partition should not grow.

Give us more details please.

He says windows is complaining about disk size.  It's a windows message because he created VDISKs that eat up all available space on his windows volume.  This is pretty standard practice...
