I am using NetApp NetApp FAS8000 Series
I wanted to create a share and make it appear as a local device in my windows system.
We can do it with help of ISCSI Initatitors, but I don't think NetApp NetApp FAS8000 Series supports ISCSI.
Can you advise me on other ideas?

Thanks Chrismaki. I also found that ISCSI initiator will work if the device supports Block Level Storage. And from what I see I believe FAS 8000 Series supports both File Level and Block Level. Correct?
Thanks Much for your help.

As per my previous post, the whole FAS80x0 line will support iSCSI, FC, and FCoE which are all Block protocols as well as the two NAS (file) protocols, NFS and CIFS (also called SMB).
Hope that helps...If the question is answered, please mark the response as "correct".
