HIT Kit for Microsoft - Windows Server 2016

Jump to solution

Hi,

I was wondering if there is an HIT Kit for Windows Server 2016 Core?  I noticed that version 4.9.0 does not include Windows 2016.

Thanks!

Hello, 

 HIT/ME is not yet support 2016.   That's expected early 2017.

Thank you, Don.

Is there a document or something where I can still connect to the SAN without HIT Kit?

Hello,

There is nothing available specifically for Windows 2016 or 2016 core.

It can be with an older OS.  I'm going to be experimenting and was wondering if there was a resource that could help.

Is there a resource(s) that can tell me how to configure MPIO without HIT Kit?  

I can connect to the EQL volume, but it uses only one iSCSI connection.

Hey Dajonx,

I'm in the same boat as you, it's incredible to me that Dell hasn't sorted this out yet. NONE of their Eqaullogic units support Server 2016 yet. It's ridiculous. Did you manage to find a doc detailing connecting without the HIT tools?

Thanks, J

Hello J, 

 If you send me a private message with your e-mail address, I can send you a copy of a PDF that has instructions for W2K8,  works the same for 2016.

I have the basics working on 2016 Server.  I installed the latest HIT Kit.  The only thing that doesn't work is ASM, so VSS control is out the window using the units.

However, as this is unsupported, I can't justify moving my operational clustered Hyper-V servers to 2016 until this is done.

Also, VMM 2016 can't connect to the storage yet as well.  So we can't use VMM 2016 to manage storage.

Is there any timeline other than 2017?  Can we get a beta?  Anything.....other than wait.

Hello, 

  The only suggestion I can offer it to contact your sales rep and with an NDA in place they can discuss the future roadmap with you in detail. 

 If you log into the EQL Support site,  you can use this link for information about getting access to the beta program. 

https://eqlsupport.dell.com/support/services.aspx?id=4167

I can't promise that you will get access to the code, beta code can't be used in production.
