ISCSI , MPIO and AMS500

Hi all,

We have an AMS500 , with a Microsoft Cluster (3+1 active passive) solution and iSCSI everywhere (no FC).

Each cluster node server is connected via 2 NIC's which are dedicated for iSCSI traffic.

We are running the MS iISCSI Initiator and I am using MPIO in failover mode.

When an iSCSI NIC fails I would expect the iscsi initiator to handle the iscsi failover over to the alternative NIC's , however it doesn't. The drive just goes offline and the cluster node fails over to the passive node.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Cheers

Craig
