Accessing Volumes

Table of contents

If using Windows, your volumes should now be accessible to your servers using the Microsoft iSCSI initiator, by supplying one of the interface IP addresses as the target portal or discovery IP address.  Once you have connected with iSCSI, open the Disk Management snap-in to initialize your volumes. Next,configure them to use the NTFS file system with a 64KB allocation unit size, supply a drive letter, and perform a quick format.   


If you are using VMware, access your server using vSphere client. Navigate to Configuration>Storage to add storage. In the wizard, set the Disk/LUN types as default; supply the iSCSI device, and review the disk layout. Provide a unique datastore name and adjust values and capacity as needed. 


For more information on using the Microsoft iSCSI initiator, see the section titled “Connecting to an iSCSI target device” at the following URL:



iSCSI connectivity can be verified on the appliance by using the ‘Connected Initiators’ page found under ‘Manage’ in the management GUI once you have connected your server to the appliance using the iSCSI initiator, as shown below.
