Before you can create iSCSI targets and LUNs and define iSCSI initiator groups, you must enable the iSCSI target service on the vSAN cluster.


  1. Navigate to the vSAN cluster in the vSphere Web Client.
  2. Click the Configure tab. Under vSAN, click General.
  3. Click the Edit button for vSAN iSCSI Target Service.
  4. Select the Enable vSAN iSCSI target service check box. You can select the default network, TCP port, and Authentication method at this time. You also can select a vSAN Storage Policy.
  5. Click OK.

What to do next

After the iSCSI target service is enabled, you can create iSCSI targets and LUNs, and define iSCSI initiator groups.
