Hi Zeev!
> I can tell you following: Windows OS and iSCSI do not support maintaining of distributed simultaneous writing and keeping file caches coherent. NTFS, FAT and most of other generic file systems do not support simultaneous access for several initiator clients. Cluster services (such as MS Cluster Service), dedicated SAN file systems (DataPlow SFS, etc) or software, allowing NTFS to be used as SAN file system (MetaSAN, etc) need to be used in order to secure data integrity. Otherwise, disable write operations on the disk by selecting "Read-Only mode". As one of possible iSCSI targets you can use Starwind Free, not one of this offer is not recommended
