The host does not have initiators logged into the storage system

Hi,

I have an EMC unity 300 Unisphere software version 4.2.1.95

I have two host (W2012R2)working fine (lun presented,etc..). For example SWPHYP01:

Now, I need to add two new servers (2 Virtual machines). I configured the network and both VM(swpsql03 and swpsql04) ping the Ip Storage system but I can't add or configure initiators properly. For example swpsql03:

I need to install something to the VM? Unisphere Client?

I think I have to configure SP's? But how with the new's IP?

Someone can help me

Thanks a lot!!

Re: The host does not have initiators logged into the storage system

Have you configured the software iSCSI initiator on the hosts to point at the target IPs on the Unity array?

Re: The host does not have initiators logged into the storage system

Take a look at the below white paper - the iSCSI section contains a detailed process for setting up the Windows host

When you setup iSCSI on the Windows host you want to not use the quick setup - that misses some important steps.
