MSA1510i & MS iSCSI initiator


I have just taken delivery of this very nice new MSA1510i with an MSA30. I am having a bit of trouble getting it to talk to the MS iSCSI initiator on a basic Windows 2003 server. Is there some kind of step by step guide to how best to setup the MSA1510i with the MS iSCSI initiator.

Many thanks

The concepts and deployment guide on your documentation cd is a good start. If you use the SMU Wizard, it will configure your first set of logical units and target with IP address, portal, portal group etc. All you need to do is know what the MS initiator name is (iqn name on the MS iscsi applet). Once you have connected your cables to the switch, verify path with a ping and then it's a simple login process from the host to access your luns.
