I am trying to connect a LUN to a physical server (Windows 2008 R2) using snapdrive v6.3. I can see the igroup (this has been deleted and recreated in snapdrive) no problem both through snapdrive and System MAanger.
When I go thorugh the 'Connect Disk Wizard' or 'Create Disk wizard' wizard with snapdrive on the server to either connect a LUN, or create a new lun, when I get to the Select Fiber initiators, I can see my two fibre cards but am not able to select either of them. I am at a loss as to why? - MPIO is installed
I have attached the screen where I can't select anything.
I had this also with the lun saying it was already mapped. You need to clear the Initiator group in System Manager and recreate them either in System MAnager or Snapdrive.
I think it could be the zonining of the fibre cards on the switch...running some checks now.
FOUND IT! - in Zoning of the Fibre CArds - when you have finished the alias / zone / zone config - you neded to save the config and ENABLE the config. This worked for me and I can select the cards now.
Also, I would let SnapDrive create the LUNS. Create the Volume in System Manager but let Snapdrive create the LUN for you (Create Disk option in SnapDrive)
