P4000 Windows Pack and 2008 R2 SP1

Does anyone know if there are any issues known with SP1 for Windows 2008 R2 and the VSS and DSM MPIO tool please?

This would be with SANiQ 9.0.

The issue that I experience is that DSM doesn't work after rebooting the server...

So when you add a volume, enable MPIO, the volume is correctly mounted with multiple connections to every node, but after a reboot only 1 connection remains. You have to disconnect and reconnect the volume again.

I'm not sure if this was already the case before SP1, because I've done the SP1 upgrade quite quickly after the installation of the SAN.

I did read thay you have to delect devices in the ISCSI initiator tool and then move the MPIO policy to failover or round robin.

If you leave it on vendor specific, it doesn't seem to do anything

I haven't seen any problems with SANiQ 8.5, it seems to be working fine so far.

But I haven't been brave enough to go 9.0 yet. Planning for it though.
