How to remove an iSCSI target on Windows 2003

Postby chicagotech » Tue Apr 14, 2015 5:15 pm

Q: I have a Windows 2003 file server with iSCSI LUN. I cannot figure out how to remove an iSCSI target (Dell Equallogic SAN) from a Windows Server 2003. The volume shows up in Windows as drive letter Z. Using the iSCSI initiator, I can remove the Target Portal, but cannot remove the Target itself.The Target no longer shows up in the iSCSI Initiator properties, but the drive letter is still there under My Computer.

A: It is strongly recommended before you remove an iSCSI target, you should make the disk offline in Disk management and then disconnect the target in iSCSI initiator window. To make it disappear in iSCSI initiator, you should remove the portal and favorite list.

You may try to use diskpart to remove the volume. Or simply removing the drive letter with Computer Management >> Storage >> ... >> Change Drive Letter and Path would accomplish the same.

If you already removed the iSCSI target, you may want to restart the server. You may not see the drive z any more.
