Got some iSCSI issues on my Cluster. After reviewing the case with Microsoft and apply a MS hotfix (see my other thread about it) ... a Microsoft Engineer suggest the following to us:

iSCSI changes:

-Under Discovery, select Discover Portal, and re-enter the iSCSI targets by manually typing them.
-Go to Targets tab, select each target, hit Connect, then Advanced. Instead of Default, change local adapter to Microsoft iSCSI Initiator
-Specify actual IP addresses on "Initiator IP" and "Target portal IP". Specify "Microsoft iSCSI initiator" on "Local Adapter"
-Accept changes. Click ok and reboot.
-Repeat on other node

I guess that above changes should be applied like any other regular and normal Os change or patch, is that correct? Here the additional Cluster steps, to make it safe:

-Remove passive node from list of owners
-Perform iSCSI changes
-Add removed node back to Cluster
-Failover all resources to the node with new iSCSI changes
-Check SQL
-Remove other node from list of owners
-Perform iSCSI changes
-Add removed node back to Cluster
-Check SQL

Any comments or suggestions?
