Nice article, John, but I do have a few questions:
1. In order to use this feature must I create the "Software RAID" in the Storage Pool wizard as shown above, or could I have already created an array with a hardware RAID controller which I will utilize as an iSCSI target?
2. When presenting a disk as an iSCSI target will it always create it as a VHD? I assume that this is to avoid any issues with SCSI reservations, so that the host and the iSCSI consumer don't both try to do things at the file-level, correct?
3. Most commercial iSCSI SAN vendors recommend having iSCSI traffic being on a separate network than production network traffic along with other considerations (jumbo-frames, flow-control, etc). Is there a way to segment the iSCSI traffic on the host presenting the iSCSI targets?
