With the software-based iSCSI implementation, you can use standard NICs to connect your host to a remote iSCSI target on the IP network. The software iSCSI adapter that is built into ESXi communicates with the physical NICs through the network stack.
The iSCSI adapter configuration workflow includes the following procedures:
- Enabling iSCSI on your host. SeeEnable iSCSI for an ESXi Host in the VMware Host Client.
- Adding a port binding. See Add Port Binding in the VMware Host Client.
- Removing port binding. See Remove Port Binding in the VMware Host Client.
