Certainly true. I guess I assumed he meant mapped as in "mapped drive". If your mapping an NTFS formatted iSCSI LUN to more than a single host, that's a path to certain corruption.

Back from VMworld with brand new Drobo B800i. Planning to put it through some good testing in my lab with v6, and will report back. Folks from Drobo are claiming their focus is providing fast and reliable production and backup storage (without tons of fluff features), which sounds like exactly what I need. Will see what they've got and how well it works.

you think so? I just jumped back on here to say that disabling AV did not help. How would you recommend we access that drive? Map to it like \\veeamServer\iscsiDrive?

He means you should not attach the same LUN via iSCSI initiator to two Windows servers at once, which is very valid suggestion. Attach it via iSCSI to backup server, and from other servers access it via a CIFS share.
