Brand new setup - iSCSI not showing

Postby sburns1992 » Tue Mar 05, 2019 2:36 pm

Good afternoon,

Firstly, apologies if his has already been posted.

I have three freshly built HP servers. Currently only have 1 NIC each (not ideal I know, but that's what I'm dealing with at the moment), so I will be using node majority.

Server 1 & 2 are to be the two vSANs and server 3 is going to be the witness.

I have been following this guide: ... erver-2016
But at the section where it mentions 'Connecting targets' - only the 2 hosts are visible, the witness does not show in the list of iSCSI connections.

Am I doing something wrong?
Is there a better way to get HA setup with two hosts that only have 1 NIC?

Thanks in advance.

You do not need to connect the Witness node via ISCSI.
You can find more information here.
Also, it is highly recommended to use separated NICs for StarWind ISCSI and synchronization traffic.
