iSCSI NAS volumes - how to enable auto online after Server restart?

Last Modified: 2019-01-17

I have attached two NAS Volumes to a Windows 2016 Server via iSCSI, when the Server restarts the Disks goes to "offline" state (Disk3 and Disk4 in the file attached), I have to then right-click and choose "online" to have them show up in Windows Explorer again.

How does one set the Server or iSCSI Policy to bring the disks back online automatically? There's no other Server or device accessing the volumes so no risk of data corruption, we restricted the access via an ACL on the iSCSI settings.
