3.5. Accessing Acronis Storage iSCSI Targets from Microsoft Hyper-VΒΆ

Note

Names of the targets to be mounted must not contain underscore characters.

  1. Make sure that Microsoft iSCSI Initiator Service, MSiSCSI, is running.

  2. Discover a new target portal. For example, for the portal 192.168.10.100, run:

    PS C:\Users\Administrator>new-iscsitargetportal \
    -targetportaladdress 192.168.10.100
    Initiator Instance Name  :
    Initiator Portal Address :
    IsDataDigest             : False
    IsHeaderDigest           : False
    TargetPortalAddress      : 192.168.10.100
    TargetPortalPortNumber   : 3260
    .. _PSComputerName           ::
    
    PSComputerName           :
    
  3. Connect to the desired target. For example, for the target iqn.2014-03.com.vstorage:test1

    PS C:\Users\Administrator> connect-iscsitarget
    cmdlet Connect-IscsiTarget at command pipeline position 1
    Supply values for the following parameters:
    NodeAddress: iqn.2014-04.com.vstorage:test1
    AuthenticationType      : NONE
    InitiatorInstanceName   : ROOT\ISCSIPRT\0000_0
    InitiatorNodeAddress    : iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft:win-l2dj7g36n7e...
    InitiatorPortalAddress  : 0.0.0.0
    InitiatorSideIdentifier : 400001370000
    IsConnected             : True
    IsDataDigest            : False
    IsDiscovered            : True
    IsHeaderDigest          : False
    IsPersistent            : False
    NumberOfConnections     : 1
    SessionIdentifier       : ffffe00000b5e020-4000013700000005
    TargetNodeAddress       : iqn.2014-04.com.vstorage:test1
    TargetSideIdentifier    : 0001
    .. _PSComputerName          ::
    
    PSComputerName          :
    
  4. To check that the disk has been connected, run

    PS C:\Users\Administrator> get-disk
    Number Friendly Name                     OperationalStatus Total Size
    ------ -------------                     ----------------- ----------
    1      IET VIRTUAL-DISK SCSI Disk Device Offline           100 GB RAW
    ...
    

You can now initialise the newly mounted disk for use in Microsoft Hyper-V.
