Use the vCLI command to display iSCSI sessions between an iSCSI adapter and a storage system.

In the procedure, --server=server_name specifies the target server. The specified target server prompts you for a user name and password. Other connection options, such as a configuration file or session file, are supported. For a list of connection options, see Getting Started with vSphere Command-Line Interfaces.


Install vCLI or deploy the vSphere Management Assistant (vMA) virtual machine. See Getting Started with vSphere Command-Line Interfaces. For troubleshooting, run esxcli commands in the ESXi Shell.


To list iSCSI sessions, run the following command:
esxcli --server=server_name iscsi session list
The command takes these options:
Option Description
-A|--adapter=str The iSCSI adapter name, for example, vmhba34.
-s|--isid=str The iSCSI session identifier.
-n|--name=str The iSCSI target name, for example, iqn.X.
