We have seen a problem where the Windows Server service starts and finishes before the SAN discs are  fully available. Therefore the file shares do not get set up. There is a Microsoft KB article for this with iSCSI discs, where the workaround is to make the server service dependent on the iSCSI Initiator.
Has anyone experienced this with FC discs, and what do you make the server service dependent on for this? We are using HDLM - so is it the HDLM driver ?
