Unable to connect ISCSI for MD3200i

This question is not answered


I'm having a lot of problems trying to connect this MD3200I via ISCSI. I have All 8 ports on the MD3200i controller connected to our R510 server. The IP addresses are below:


Out of band

All the subnet mask's are

I have the ISCSI target name of the storage array but when I go to connect via my server, I get "No Such host is known"

I messed around with the IP address in the Modular Disk Configuration Utility and saw that the target name was reconnecting.....but then it gets stuck there. I tried to remove and add it back in but I still get the same error. 

When I go through the sets in the Utility, everything seems to work but when I create the ISCSI sessions, I get "Create 0 sessions". 

I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this out.

  • Hello WitteIT,

    Is you’re MD3200i direct connected to your R510 server or is there a switch in the middle that both your MD3200i & your R510 server is connected to? Also is what the IP of your R510 server is?

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
