not sure I follow, the backup runs to a "local disk  iscsi target" then 
replicates offsite- - but I'm  assuming (God forbid) ransomware hits the host 
then it would also encrypt  the  "local iscsi disk" -

Wouldn’t your backup tool be responsible for doing this? This seems very likely 
to fail in some way, shape, or form at some point.

Subject: [NTSysADM] scheduling iSCSI connections

Is it possible to schedule iSCSI connections  (connect at 11pm, disconnect 6 am)

We currently backup our hyper-v guests to our NAS which is presented to the 
host via iSCSI,

The goal is  to achieve the equivalent  of ejecting a tape after backup is 
complete, in case of a ransomware infection.

We do also have it offsite, however, I'd much rather restore 6tb locally than 
over the wire.

Any thoughts feedback are greatly appreciated
