Problem connecting to Equallogic iSCSI target

Postby Ryan » Wed Dec 05, 2012 7:12 pm

Hello,

I'm getting an error while I try to connect to the target. On the Equallogic, I have a volume assigned an iSCSI target, with no restrictions (accepts all connections from any initiator name, accepts all connections from any IP address, and has no CHAP authentication requirement). Ultimately, if I can get this working, I need to apply at least a CHAP authentication restriction, but I wanted to rule out any causes of problems before I moved forward.

The OS I'm using is Windows Server 2012, and its default initiator connects perfectly. The reason I want to use the Starwind initiator is that I'm having I/O performance issues in VMs hosted on the iSCSI-connected volume, and I heard that Starwind has caching for its initator that might improve performance. The error and log file are as follows:

"An error occurred during installation of the device.
Creation of the iSCSI device failed with all the addresses supplied by the server."

Please stick with MS iSCSI initiator for production. We're not at the position to support free product (StarPort) for connectivity to something we did not actually sell to you (so no control over device firmware, EQL in this case). Sorry for this.
