Mirror between iSCSI and Internal HDD issue

Postby niladri » Sat Jun 08, 2013 9:12 am

We had done software mirror/RAID1 between iSCSI volume and internal HDD volume in a Windows 2003 std server. Everytime the sever restart the Mirror gets de-activated which needs manual re-activation resulting re-sysncing of entire volume.
Does Starwinds initiator has any solution or wayout to it?

It's not an initiator issue it's dynamic disk one. There was a tool I wrote years ago to re-activate dynamic disk but I'm not sure do we have one or no...

Try DISKPART from MS + PowerShell scripting on your own. See:

We had the same issue previously. We contacted Starwinds initiator support. But didn't get any response.

1) You should have an automatically generated e-mail with ticket number either way. No response = no e-mail received.

2) StarWind initiator isn't supported either way. Use Microsoft iSCSI initiator in production.
