Learn how to configure iSCSI CHAP (Challenge-Handshake Authentication Protocol) to secure ESXi host and storage array communications.
- [Instructor] In this video I'll demonstrate…how to configure CHAP for authentication…of an iSCSI storage array.…Let's start by clicking on hosts and clusters…and we're going to choose esxi01.vclass.local…and if we click on the manage tab…we can see under storage that we've created…a software iSCSI adapter…and under the software iSCSI adapter…we've already configured networking port binding…to tie it to a vm kernel port.…
We've configured dynamic discovery…so that this particular esxi host…can reach out and find out about LUNs…that are available on this storage array.…And we've also created a data store…and if we go to related objects we can see our data store…called iSCSI-VMFS.…CHAP gives you the ability to validate that an iSCSI device…is truly a valid storage array…and you can even configure mutual authentication…so that the array can also validate the esxi host.…
So in order to configure CHAP…we'll click on our iSCSI software adaptor…we'll click on targets…and we'll choose the iSCSI storage array…and click on the authentication button.…
