We are trying to connect Windows Server 2008 R2 to a DSS V6 Lite volume using the built-in Microsoft iSCSI initiator. We can get the Windows iSCSI to discover the target and connect, but the blank disk will either not show up, or show up but will freeze the MMC console when trying to initialize the disk. Also, trying to disconnect the iSCSI target will cause the iSCSI manager to freeze and sometimes even cause Windows to completely get frozen.

As a test, we connected another iSCSI target with a different storage appliance (Nexenta) and have a currently working EqualLogic target on the host. Are there any settings that need to be adjusted on the DSS console that don't work with the defaults? Thanks in advance.
