Re: SnapDrive for Windows on Windows 2008 running as ESX guest

Hi,

I have still this problem.

Now in a new environment with SnapDrive 6.4 on Windows 2008

We use DataOnTap 8.0.2P3

But we are create or connect the disk via software iSCSI now

Error in SnapDrive still the same:

-------------------------  SnapDrive Operation Start ---------------------------------

Disk connect operation on server - OBELIX failed for reason

A timeout of 120 secs elapsed while waiting for volume arrival notification from the operating system.

--------------------- The complete operation list is shown as follows -------------------

********************* Server Name: OBELIX*********************

1. Checking input parameters

2. Checking access control

3. Checking policies

4. Turning on space reservation

5. Connecting to the LUN

6. A timeout of 120 secs elapsed while waiting for volume arrival notification from the operating system.  

------------------------------------------ Operation Done ---------------------------------------

We see the disk in Disk Management but no drive letter is assigned not formatted

Anybody an idea?

Can this path helps? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975921

Are you getting the error on connect only?  Was the LUN you're connecting to created by Snapdrive?  If not, you will need to prepare the LUN so SnapDrive can manage it and procedure is in the IAG.

As a test, try to create a new volume, create a new lun with snapdrive, and see if same error exists. If yes, Please contact NGS and open a ticket as they may be able to assist you if it is a issue with the software or with NPIV support.
