iSCSI configuration for bl460c blade


iSCSI configuration for bl460c blade

Hi all,

I'm having problem with trying to setup iSCSI for my BL460c blade server.

Currently, the blade server already connected to Netapp storage system via FC channel.

I just purchased Vtrak storage system from and I try to use iSCSI to connect the blade to the Vtrak system.

I also purchase the iSCSI license pack for the server. After installed the latest version of Microsoft iSCSI initiator, I tried to connect to the Vtrak system but the connection just stays inactive. When I tried to log on from the iSCSI Initiator on the server, the server getting blue screen and reboot. I configured the iSCSI intiator on server using HP NC373i embeded NIC.

I really appreciate for any advise from the expert here.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Best Regards,

Re: iSCSI configuration for bl460c blade

First Check (annoying but good practice)

Install the latest Broadcom NIC Multifunction driver from HP for your NICs (1GB or 10Gb)

Install the latest Proliant Networking Config Utility(the teaming util)

Install the latest Broadcom NIC Firmware.

If you tell me the model generation no and the OS version I'll provide links.

Hi Adrian,

Thank you very much for you replied.

My Blade server has HP NC373i Multifunction Gigabit 1Gb NIC and driver version is 6/23/2009.

I have both Ethernet & FC Virtual Connect module.

I'm not sure if this has to do with the VC.

Again, thanks for your replied.
