The ‘Connected Initiators’ page, shown below, provides a tabular list of initiators that have successfully connected to your appliance, including the iSCSI Qualified Name (IQN) and IP address of each initiator.

This page is useful in identifying which servers are connected to your appliance and validating correct configuration of volumes and volume access groups.  If you see unexpected initiators in the connected initiators list, review the volume access group configurations to see where they may be too relaxed.  If you do not see expected initiators in the connected initiators list, review the volume access group configurations to see where they are incorrectly configured or otherwise are configured to be too restrictive.

 

Text boxes are shown beneath the ‘Name’ column header and the ‘IP Address’ column header.  These text boxes allow you to provide input that can be used to filter the list of connected initiators.  To use these filters, supply a value for either the IQN in the ‘Name’ field, or, supply an IP address value in the ‘IP Address’ field.  Click the funnel icon to the right of the text box to choose the filter you use to filter your results.  The following filters are available: 

 

-       Filters for Name:

 

  • NoFilter – removes any currently applied filter
  • Contains – matches any IQN that contains the value in the text box
  • DoesNotContain – matches any IQN that does not contain the value in the text box
  • StartsWith – matches any IQN that begins with the value in the text box
  • EndsWith – matches any IQN that ends with the value in the text box
  • EqualTo – only matches IQNs that are identical to the value in the text box
  • NotEqualTo – only matches IQNs that are not identical to the value in the text box

 

-       Filters for IP Address:

 

  • NoFilter – removes any currently applied filter
  • Contains – matches any IP address that contains the value in the text box
  • DoesNotContain – matches any IP address that does not contain the value in the text box
  • StartsWith – matches any IP address that begins with the value in the text box
  • EndsWith – matches any IP address that ends with the value in the text box
  • EqualTo – only matches IP address that are identical to the value in the text box
  • NotEqualTo – only matches IP addresses that are not identical to the value in the text box

 

To clear your filters, either select ‘NoFilter’ from the list of filters, or return to the ‘Connected Initiators’ page using the link in the ‘Manage’ section of the menu bar.
