Windows 2012 iSCSI errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using Windows 2012 iSCSI cluster which runs on two w2012 hyper-v vms. EqualLogic HIT MPIO is installed on vms. Sometimes during some heavy load we receive plenty of errors like:

    EventID 9: Target did not respond in time for a SCSI request. The CDB is given in the dump data.
    EventID 39: Initiator sent a task management command to reset the target. The target name is given in the dump data.
    EventID 129: The description for Event ID 129 from source iScsiPrt cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer. 
    EventID 7: Initiator failed to connect to the target. Target IP address and TCP Port number are given in dump data.
    EventID 20: Connection to the target was lost. The initiator will attempt to retry the connection.
    EventID 1: Initiator failed to connect to the target. Target IP address and TCP Port number are given in dump data.

    I have tried: 
    netsh int tcp set global RSS=disabled
    netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
    netsh int tcp set global chimney=disabled

    But this does not help. I want to apply: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2522766 but do not see Windows 2012 in the list that this update is suitable for this OS, what else we could do?

    Also we noticed that performance slows down then the errors occur.

    Thanks

Answers

  • Since you are not using the Microsoft MPIO, you might want to contact EqualLogic.

    Is there some specific function you need from the EqualLogic DSM instead of using the built-in Microsoft?  Unless there is something specific you need, it would make it easier to use Microsoft's MPIO.
