Hi,
NW6.5 sp7 with all the current post-patches as iSCSI initiator to NAS (HDS SMS100) target.
The NW server can successfully connect to the target.
The target presents its storage to the initiator as a device but the device can not be initialised to create a partition.

NAS itself is working fine (we've connected one of its LUNs to Win2003 server without any problems).

I really appreciate your help.
Thank you in advance,
Janusz


The following are set commands I am using:

iscsi set InitiatorName=iqn.1984-08.com.novell:fs-backup
iscsi set InitiatorAlias=fs-backup
iscsi set MaxConnections=9
iscsi set InitialR2T=No
iscsi set ErrorRecoveryLevel=2
iscsi set MaxBurstLength=65536
iscsi set FirstBurstLength=65536
iscsi set MaxRecvDataSegmentLength=65536
iscsiham set max luns = 9
iscsiham monitor on
iscsilog level=console
iscsi list


The following is the iSCSI report:
