HyperV cluster ISCSI Storage Issue

Hello all,

I have a client that has an issue with their ISCSI connectivity to HyperV Cluster, The ISCSI is configured with two 10GB ports with teaming config as well. each of these port has a cable going to a different Switch. The network team has checked the switches and they can see traffic going sometimes from Switch A and other times from Switch B.

But passing this switch to the Storage there's nothing going there.. I would like to know if distributing these two physical network ports on a different switch is the right thing to do or not when Teaming is configured ?

If it's ok what else do I have to check?

Thanks a lot

Hi again Andrew,

There seems to be no SAN, Client is using HP MSA 2040 Storage, Disks are SAS 10k
4 port iSCSI are connected directly to the Switch.

It seems those support ISCSI as I can see the in HP's site of this product

A little confused here, it's either iSCSI SAN or Direct Attached SAS unit ?

MSA 2040, is available as a SAS, iSCSI or FC unit ?

So I would look at the HPE documents for such, as the recommended configuration, which is probably multi path. (not teaming).
