Re: Is there a way to force iSER connections? (iSER Troubleshooting)

Thanks for your post. Sadly, I have no clear ETA for the build. Originally, it was February (end of Q1), but now it seems June. Thank you for the updated ETA. As far as the original issue goes (why I created this post), lingering processes after restarting the service: I have been unable to reprodu...

Re: Is there a way to force iSER connections? (iSER Troubleshooting)

Thanks for sharing your observations and questions. Can you please tell me more about the networks and the setup? Which NICs do you use and is it a bare-metal deployment or is it a nested cluster? Hi, ty for your reply! The setup is: Windows vSAN v8.0.0.0 build 15260 on bare metal (free) Hyper-V Se...

Is there a way to force iSER connections? (iSER Troubleshooting)

I am currently building my first ever Hyper-V HCI cluster and I found in my testing that iSER sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. What I mean by that is, if it works (if both nodes show iSER as enabled in the management console), it works but if it doesn't, it is very difficult to get it to wo...

Re: iSER_DM is not loaded

P.s. Let me know if your trial key expired and if you need the new one. p.p.s . You cannot switch from TRIAL to FREE. Yes, please, I would like to get a new trial key as my first trial key expired without me using it. I requested the trial key in October 2023 and I am only now in the position to te...

Re: IP address banned

Thanks for your update. Glad to know it works :) There is something else, I would like to report: When this happened, I tried to contact the forum admin by using the "Contact Us" form at the bottom of the page. It gave me an error about a missing email subject line but I did not see a pos...

Re: iSER_DM is not loaded

Thanks for your feedback. NVMe-oF, from my experience grants way better performance than iSCSI and iSER. That's why I am excited to hear users' feedback! It should be available soon. Yes, but I would like to know if you will make it available in the free version once it is included in CVM. As for r...

Re: iSER_DM is not loaded

Hi, thank you for your reply. I found the problem and fixed it! I'm putting it here in case someone needs it in the future. At this point, iSER is deprecated pretty much, it didn't take off on Windows or anywhere else. We're close to release NVMe-oF (RDMA & TCP) in StarWind VSAN CVM. Will you ma...

3-2-1 rule

Hi, regarding blog entry about the 3-2-1 rule, I have found that usually, the 3 copies include the original data (production copy) and then there are two backups. In the blog entry, is is stated that there should be 3 copies not including the production data. So, four copies in total. The blog entry...

Re: vSAN Hyper-V questions: CVM vs Win, paid vs free, etc.

StarWind VSAN deployed as a CVM allows creating ZFS stripped mirror storage pools using four or more identical disks. This is a bit embarrassing for me, but I did not see that I can scroll down to see more options. :lol: To me, at first it looked like this: https://i.imgur.com/B2xlgs0.png But scrol...

Re: vSAN Hyper-V questions: CVM vs Win, paid vs free, etc.

Thank you very much for your replies! For now, I have just a bit of feedback to share from my testing: When four physical disks are made available to the CVM, the webinterface does not allow the creation of a ZFS striped mirror (RAID 10 like). I believe this should be added. However, if I create the...

vSAN Hyper-V questions: CVM vs Win, paid vs free, etc.

Hi, I'm looking to set up a small 2-node HCI cluster with vSAN free and Hyper-V and I have spent a considerable amount of time reading the documentation, blog entries and the forums, watching YT videos. I have tested vSAN Windows and CVM versions in a test environment. Here's what I still don't quit...
