MSA 2312i Windows ISCSI MPIO


I just install a MSA2312i with 2 controllers with 2 HP Proliant DL380 G7, the iscsi network is 2 switch Procurve 1810G-24.

I've severals LUN on the 2 controllers A and B on the MSA.

Windows server 2008 R2 is on the 2 servers for Hyper-v r2 Cluster, 2 NIC per hots is for ISCSI.

The ISCSI Initiator is configured and MPIO is enable with round robin with subnet policy.

The problem is when I check the mpio, I disconnect 1 NIC I've a 1 minute blank when the server can't access to the lun. There is no traffic on the over active path.

HP Support checked MSA, all is OK.
MS Support checked ISCSI config and all is OK.

Anyone have an idea ?
Thanks for your help.

I believe the 60 second timeout is default.
I also believe you can change this by editing the registry..

This looks like a good read:
