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


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