3 Microsoft iSCSI initiator on Win2008R2

iSCSI initiator is part of the Microsoft Admin tool.


2 Hyper-V Lab Build note 2: Admin Server With RSAT and Microsoft iSCSI

This is 2nd Host of my lab environment.  I initially want to use my laptop as admin server which I can use RSAT manage my Server Core DC and Hyper-V but my laptop is not part of DC. It would be not easy ( if it is even possible ) to make it happen.  So I have build the this VM for running RSAT and also serve as my share storage.

1. Install Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise from media.

It does not make any difference to use Enterprise or Standard edition for the purpose what I want to do with this VM.
