MS cluster and iSCSI

If you are trying to build a cluster with sql and/or windows itself with iSCSI quorum disk, your iSCSI-target have to support the "SCSI 3 Peristent Reservation"-standard. In my case i wouldn't use the target from starwind and tested a few opensource targets the past days but none of them did support PR. I tested: IETD, SCST and Open Solaris iSCSI.

Now i'm waiting to get access to the target from microsoft wich is available as addon for the windows server datacenter edition that definitly should support PR. The problem with this that it's only available for partners and OEMs.
