Shared folders
Hi all. We have an MD3000i connected to an HP Proliant DL380G5. Occasionally when the server is restarted after, say, an update or software change, the shared folders on the MD3000i are no longer shared. I believe this is because the storage device is not available at the time that Windows tries to activate the shares. I read about this problem before but can't find the information now - blank moment, I'm sorry. If anyone can tell me which services should be dependant on which, I would be grateful.

Without the iSCSI service, the Server service can’t start file shares. Therefore, you need to make the Server service dependent on the iSCSI Initiator. To do so, follow these steps:

1. On the server experiencing the problem, open a command prompt by going to Start | Run.
2. In the Open text box, enter cmd, and press [Enter].
3. Enter sc config LanManServer depend= MSiSCSI, and press [Enter].

Make sure that your iSCSI volume connections are persistent. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Go to Start | Control Panel, and double-click the iSCSI Initiator.
2. On the Initiator Settings tab, click the Bind Volumes button, and click OK.
