DrivePool on Server 2012 breaks iSCSI target creation

edited February 2013 in DrivePool
With DrivePool BETA, if DrivePool is installed, I cannot create an iSCSI target on any drive, whether it is in the pool or not. As soon as I uninstall it, it creates without any issues. Anyone else having this issue?

Error: The Microsoft iSCSI Target service could not create the virtual disk using device c:\iSCSIVirtualDisks\Test.vhd. The operation failed with error 2147942560

    I having the same issues. I am using Drive pool BETA on windows essential server 2012. I am trying to create an iSCSI target on a  non drivepool drive. The error occurs when it tries to create the virtual disk. I also tried to create just the iscsi virtual disk using PowerShell, but it kept giving me an error
