Symptoms

In a particular case, the storage administrator was using SAN RepLite that caused SAN Slammer 1 CU 1 to restart because of iSCSI overload on the iSCSI card.
Replicated LUNs were unavailable in excess of 10 sec on some occurances and Windows considered the LUNs Offline.
The same problem can occur without replication and the Windows MPIO parameters listed below may prevent LUNs going offline at the OS level when the Control Unit is completing it's warmstart
