Q. I'm using the Microsoft iSCSI Target on my Windows Storage Server 2008 implementation. Can I install the iSCSI Target in standalone mode if the WSS is clustered?

A. When Microsoft iSCSI Target is installed, it checks the OS to ascertain if the OS is clustered. If the OS is clustered, the iSCSI target installs in a high availability mode, where shared storage and cluster resources are used. At this time, it isn't possible to install the iSCSI Target in standalone mode onto a server that's part of a failover cluster.
