    dell poweredge iSCSI win2k8 r2

    Hi

    I've got an old dell poweredge 1950 which i'm playing about with to try out iscsi connectivity ad it's got a broadcom 5709C dual port gigE card which is iSCSI (offload ?) capable,. I've downloaded the broadcom utility for configuring the iSCSI ip address with a view to connecting one of the ports to a physically seperate switch for connection to iSCSI target.

    If i go the route of setting a static ip do i need to do anything with the LAN ipv4 address on the same port ? How are people setting up their gigE cards for iSCSI connections ? Do you set ip addresses and other settings in windows 2008 or use broadcom utiltiy. In particular how do you configure when using dual or quad port servers as hyperv hosts with an iscsi storage array.

    I generally set static on both ports. On the server end and iSCSI connection. You would also want to look at Teaming your network cards for your Hyper-V virtual networks.
