Drive letter or mount point of volume or Device
2009-01-29 01:55 PM
I am new to the NetApp community and new to the Microsoft iSCSI initiator. I cannot figure out how to add volumes to my server. The first volume was easy, in the iSCSI initiator I simply clicked the Bind All button and the only volume I had configured was there with some cryptic name. Now when I click Bind All again, no new volumes show up, though I have created many, and even if they did I am not sure I would be able to identify them by their cryptic name.
So please tell me there is an easy way to identify the mount point of the volumes that I have created so I can just click the Add button under the Bound Volumes/Devices tab of the Microsoft iSCSI initiator. Else direct me to some step by step documentation which I have been unable to find. I even took the DataOntap 7.2 course thinking there would be some answers there and nothing.

Shukria mera dost, leken solution kuch ne mili. Meaning I have already created a connection from my server to connect to the first volume I created on the NetApp SAN, then when I add new volumes on the NetApp SAN, and now I want to connect to those volumes and my Discovery Tab and Target tab goes unchanged, so the only tab I have left with any thing to do is the Bound Volumes/Devices tab and the two options are "Add" and "Bind All". When I click "Bind All" nothing happens. When I click "Add" it asks for "Drive letter or mount point of volume or Device", my dilemma is that I don't know what syntax it is looking for. Do I give it the IP address of the NetApp SAN? Do I give it the \vol1\fileshare path to the volume on the NetApp SAN? Is there a syntax to follow?
