- Windows Server 2016
- ONTAP 9
When trying to map LUNs to a windows host the iSCSI initiator is not able to create the session.
Checking the storage end:
- LUN is mapped.
- Igroup contains the correct Initiator IQN
- iSCSI service is up.
- Ping works from and to ONTAP iSCSI LIFs.
- When checking System Windows event logs, we can see the event
Event Id: 5 Source: iScsiPrt
- When checking the iSCSI initiator properties >Favorite targets, we can see multiple targets of which some are not valid anymore.
