With Windows Server 2019, I have an iScsi cluster with multiple iScsi Initiators and one iScsi Target.  Using MPIO, I can add redundancy by creating multiple paths to storage.  However, my single iScsi Target is a single point of failure - if it goes down, I lose my storage.  I'm not seeing a way to add a secondary failover iScsi Target server to the mix.  Is it possible with a pure Windows Server solution?
