Cant connect to ISCSI target

Postby doubledownn24 » Wed Nov 18, 2009 6:42 pm

Running Starwind 5.0 on Windows 2008 R2 64Bit

On the local machine I can ISCSI initiator to my targets on Starwind.

On my member server I can not connect to Starwind targets. It doesn't show up when using ISCSI initiator and specifying the named host for my starwind targets, or just auto discovering.

The member server shows these eventid's:

More info:

Installing Starwind on the second computer and trying to connect to the service running on the host, it is saying "Starwind Service Not Found"

Again, ISCSI and Starwind ports on inbound and outbound are setup properly (as far as I can tell, whatever the default installation does).

Resolved. You have to manually add 3260/3261 inbound ports to Windows Firewall to access Starwind ISCSI Targets. This should be done automatically during install.

We actually allow users chose both the ports and the firewall settings, so, in case one decides to actually choose a different port, we are not hard coding it to the program.

Thanks.
