iSCSI Initiator may not able to re-connect drives.


Microsoft iSCSI Initiator may not re-connect drives connect to storage. This happens because the iSCSI Initiator service is set to manual or somehow it is set to not to start when system restarts.

You need to set it to “Automatic” from services.msc snap-in and then reboot your system.

  1. The built-in Windows 2008 server iSCSI Initiator autostarts, but has another problem. If an iSCSI SAN goes down, it’s targets are not automatically reconnected. Any way around this problem?
