We are in the process of bringing a ReadyNAS on line as an iSCSI target to a Windows Server 2003 initiator.
When restarting the ReadyNAS I am warned to disconnect the iSCSI initiator gracefully first.
When I try to log off the target session from the W2K3 initiator I get an error that the session cannot be logged out since a device on that session is currently being used.
When I go into Disk Management there is no enabled option for the disk to deactivate it or take it offline.
Is there something else I should be doing to gracefully disconnect the initiator?
When I tested doing a restart on the ReadyNAS without doing anything on the server send I couldn't see the contents of my shares anymore until I unshared and then reshared them. I wouldn't want to have to do that in the event of some klutz cutting power or unplugging the orange patch cable that says "DON'T UNPLUG!"
