Updated: June 24, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012, Windows Storage Server 2012



Troubleshooting iSCSI Software Target migration issues involves first viewing the contents of the Windows Server Migration Tools deployment log and the result objects. For more information, see Locate the deployment log file and View the content of Windows Server Migration Tools result objects.

The iSCSI migration tool (iSCSITargetSettings.PS1) does not produce a log file, but it prints diagnostics messages on the console. These messages show the outcome of the operations that are being attempted and performed.

For example, the following message shows information about saved settings:

PS C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerSehll\V1.0\Modules\IscsiTarget>
.\iSCSITargetSettings.PS1 -Export -FileName $env:temp\test00000000.xml

Number of Target(s) saved in the Export settings: 4.
Target Names:
   test000
   test001
   test002
   test1111

Number of Virtual Disk(s) saved in the Export settings: 3.
Virtual Disk DevicePaths:
   s:\test000.vhd
   t:\test000.vhd
   z:\test000.vhd

Number of Virtual Disk(s) NOT saved in the Export settings: 0.
Virtual Disk DevicePaths:

The following message shows that not all the virtual disks are eligible for migration:

PS D:\Program Files\ISCSI Target> .\iSCSITargetSettings.PS1 -Export -FileName $env:temp\test00000001.xml

Number of Target(s) saved in the Export settings: 4.
Target Names:
   test000
   test001
   test002
   test1111

Number of Virtual Disk(s) saved in the Export settings: 3.
Virtual Disk DevicePaths:
   s:\test000.vhd
   t:\test000.vhd
   z:\test000.vhd

Number of Virtual Disk(s) NOT saved in the Export settings: 1.
Virtual Disk DevicePaths:
    \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy{B6B3C77C-93CC-11DF-B3FE-001CC0C60A6E}\test000.vhd

The following message shows information about the settings restore phase:

PS C:\Program Files\ISCSI Target> .\iSCSITargetSettings.PS1 -Import -file $env:temp\test00000000.xml

Importing settings from file 'E:\Users\administrator\AppData\Local\Temp\test00000001.xml'.
The operation may take a long time.

Number of Target(s) imported from the Import settings: 4.
Targets:
    test000
    test001
    test002
    test1111

Number of Virtual Disk(s) imported from the Import settings: 3.
Virtual Disk:
   s:\test000.vhd
   t:\test000.vhd
   z:\test000.vhd
