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 and click Configure > vSAN > Services.
  2. On the vSAN iSCSI Target Service row, click ENABLE.
    The Edit vSAN iSCSI Target Service wizard opens.
  3. Edit the vSAN iSCSI target service configuration.
    You can select the default network, TCP port, and Authentication method at this time. You also can select a vSAN storage policy.
  4. Click the Enable vSAN iSCSI Target service slider to turn it on and then click APPLY.


The vSAN iSCSI target service is enabled.

What to do next
