Unable to connect ISCSI for MD3200i

Hello,

I'm having a lot of problems trying to connect this MD3200I via ISCSI. I have All 8 ports on the MD3200i controller connected to our R510 server. The IP addresses are below:

In-band

192.168.130.101

192.168.131.101

192.168.132.101

192.168.133.101

192.168.130.102

192.168.131.102

192.168.132.102

192.168.133.102

Out of band

192.168.1.30

192.168.1.31

All the subnet mask's are 255.255.252.0

I have the ISCSI target name of the storage array but when I go to connect via my server, I get "No Such host is known"

I messed around with the IP address in the Modular Disk Configuration Utility and saw that the target name was reconnecting.....but then it gets stuck there. I tried to remove and add it back in but I still get the same error. 

When I go through the sets in the Utility, everything seems to work but when I create the ISCSI sessions, I get "Create 0 sessions". 

I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this out.

RE: Unable to connect ISCSI for MD3200i

Hello WitteIT,

Is you’re MD3200i direct connected to your R510 server or is there a switch in the middle that both your MD3200i & your R510 server is connected to? Also is what the IP of your R510 server is?

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

RE: Unable to connect ISCSI for MD3200i

Hello, thanks for replying. My MD3200I is directly connected to my R510. I am using the default IP of 192.168.130.101, etc. I can ping it from the R510 but the iscsi target wont connect.
