Unable to Format VOlumes presented to Windows 2016

Hi ,


We have a StoreVirtual 3200 connected to HPE Blade Servers using HPE 6125G/XG Interconnected(Dedicated only for Storage with 10G DAC Cables). We can detected the Presented Volumes of HyperV 2016 Hosts, but while formating it stays for ever and in the event viewer we are getting error messages in Windows Event Manager Event 7 "The Initiator Could Not Send an iSCSI PDU. Error status is given in the dump data. " Error 20 " and Error 20 "Connection to Target was lost. The initator will attempt to retry the connection"

Please assist.
