is it possible to a msa2012i iscsi storage directly to a single host.

We are trying to connect msa2012i storage directly to hosts. The host has two nic's, one connected to first controller and the second connected to second controller. but the host detects only one controller and when we disable one nic, failover not happening and fails. any help

Have you installed MPIO on the host?

Which connections on the back of the MSA are you using?

What are the IP addresses of the 2 nics?

Does this mean you have a 3rd NIC for regular network access?

What are you using to "detect" your msa?

What is the OS you are using on the server?

in the iscsi initiator you see the controllers?
