When the Hosts and Openfiler SAN was rebooted recently the datastores on this SAN failed to reappear. I tried refreshing storage adapter in vCenter which didn't work, I tried scanning the adapter again which didn't work. The only way I could get it to work was to remove the Dynamic target and the static targets and reattached the iSCSI target to the SAN.
Does anyone know of a way to automatically start the Openfiler SAN LUN's prior to vCenter conecting the iSCSI targets again, or a way to delay the time it takes for vCenter to re-attach the iSCSI targets to the SAN so that I don't have to manually attach the targets in future.
Or does anyone have any better ideas on how to solve this.
I hadn`t work a lot with LeftHand, but from all I know can say that it`s good. Most of time I`ve worked with Datacore and StarWind. The reason of this - as for me LeftHand is too expensive, while datacore is too complicated for me. Now I`m closely look at StarWind, for now works not bad.
