Next, hover over ‘Configure’, click ‘Security’, and then click ‘Access Control Records’. On this page you will define the servers that will be accessing volumes provided by your appliance. An Access Control Record includes parameters to define one or more servers, and a volume can have one or more Access Control Records assigned to it. An access control record is composed of CHAP credentials (optional, not discussed in this document) and IQNs. All parameters of the access control record definition must match what is supplied by the initiator attempting to connect to a volume in order for access to be permitted.

To create an access control record, perform the following steps:AccessControlRecord1S.png


  • Click the ‘Add New Record’ button.
  • Supply a name for the record in the ‘Name’ field.
  • Select the CHAP user to enforce authentication. If you do not want to enforce CHAP authentication, select 'Any User' from the dropdown. 
  • For the IQN field, supply a unique value. Wild cards are not allowed. 
  • When you have finished supplying parameters for your access control record, click the green checkmark next to the name to save it. 
  • Repeat this process for each of the servers in your environment that will be consuming storage volumes from this appliance.
