Nimble Connection Manager in Windows

I am setting up my first Windows host (VM) Windows 2012 R2.  It will be a SQL server and I will use the MS guest iSCSI software to connect to the volumes.  I have...

  • Got all updates/hotfixes installed.
  • MPIO installed.
  • Nimble Windows Integration Kit installed and rebooted.
  • Provisioned a few volumes for this host.

At this point do I need to use the Microsoft iSCSI software or just use the Nimble Connection Manager?  (I see my provisioned volumes in the NCM).  The NCM looks much easier to manage and if I dont have use the MS iSCSI software I won't.

Thanks!

Hi Chris. Welcome to Nimble!

NCM for Windows is a collection of services designed to make Windows iSCSI management and MPIO easier. It uses the MS iSCSI Initiator for back-end connectivity, so go ahead and use NCM. It will also automatically MPIO your connections and will spin new paths up when it needs them.
