If settings, such as the IQN name, IP address, and so on, change on the iSCSI storage or your host, update the iBFT. This task assumes that the boot LUN and the data stored on the LUN remain intact.


  1. Shut down the ESXi host.
  2. Change iSCSI storage settings.
  3. Update the iBFT on the host with the new settings.
  4. Restart the host.
    The host boots using the new information stored in the iBFT.
