On an ESXi host, view a dependent hardware iSCSI adapter to verify that it is correctly loaded.
- In the vSphere Client, navigate to the ESXi host.
- Click the Configure tab.
- Under Storage, click Storage Adapters.
- Select the adapter (vmhba#) to view.
The default details for the adapter appear, including the iSCSI name, iSCSI alias, and the status.
What to do next
Although the dependent iSCSI adapter is enabled by default, to make it functional, you must set up networking for the iSCSI traffic and bind the adapter to the appropriate VMkernel iSCSI port. You then configure discovery addresses and CHAP parameters.
