It seems you haven't established iSCSI session from your server to NetApp storage.

Let me know if you need help with this. !

Welcome to the NetApp community. We'll all try to guide you !

Can you see an ISCSI sesion login sesion message in your syslog file on the filer ?

( /etc/messages )

Did you run through the ISCSI initiator setup on the Windows server ?

Did you add credentials for the filer in Snapdrive ?

It's usualy best practice to try creating the LUN through SnapDrive...

Wish you were in class here in Atlanta with us to help you through this problem.

I hope this response has been helpful to you.
