I want to assign a LUN to a physical windows server 2008 R2 machine using two 1gb ethernet connections. I feel that i have everything in place but for some reason i cant get the multipathing to work and I want to see what im missing.
Vprod - 276 - 10.127.6.2
Vprod - 277 - 10.127.7.2
Ethernet 2 - 10.127.6.10
Ethernet 3 - 10.127.7.10
Ethernet 2 is on vlan 276
Ethernet 3 is on vlan 277 I can ping both vprod interfaces from the windows machine.
I am able to discover both initiators but i can assign one of them. If I open MPIO the iscsi multipathing option is greyed out.

Can you post a screenshot of the greyed out option. I can look and help you better.
(ignore if you knew before --- I would recommend using Netapp SnapDrive tool for creating / mapping luns from windows end.)
did some google around this and found http://blogs.technet.com/b/migreene/archive/2009/08/29/3277914.aspx
>Looks like you have to make at least one iscsi connection before you have the option to enable MPIO for iscsi.
hope this helps
