SYMPTOMS

In Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008, you encounter one of the following problems. These problems are related to storage adapters.

Problem 1

The TotalSenseDataBytes registry entry does not work correctly. For example, consider the following scenario:
  • You use a Storport Miniport.
  • You set the following registry key to configure the size of the sense data in bytes for a certain storage adapter:
    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\BUS\DeviceId\Device\Device Parameters\StorPort
    Type: DWORD
    Name: TotalSenseDataBytes
    Value: Between 18 and 255
In this scenario, you see the sense data bytes are not set correctly.

Problem 2

You cannot remove a persistent iSCSI target if Physical Address Extension (PAE) is enabled. For example, consider the following scenario:
  • PAE is enabled on a Windows Server 2008-based computer.
  • The computer has more than 4 gigabytes (GB) of physical memory.
  • You use the Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator item in Control Panel to connect to a persistent iSCSI target.
In this scenario, you cannot remove the persistent target.

Note This problem occurs only when certain iSCSI host bus adapters are used for the iSCSI connection.
