Join Brandon Neill for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring iSCSI, part of VMware vSphere 6 Essential Training.
- The first step in configuring storage…for my lab environment is to add a software iSCSI adapter.…To do this I'm again under, I have host1 selected,…I'm under the manage tab in the storage section,…under storage adapters, click on plus to create…a new storage adapter.…Select software iSCSI. Click on OK.…Monitor the recent tasks to verify…that it was actually completed.…
And I should now have a new software iSCSI adapter…showing up in my list.…Once I have the adapter showing up,…I need to configure a network port binding to attach…this to the two adapters that I created earlier.…However, before I can do that, first I have to make…a configuration change to those adapters.…So, I need to go back to networking,…select those two interfaces that I configured earlier.…We'll start with IPStore 1, edit settings on it,…and this time I need to go down to teaming and fallover…and I need to override the original settings.…
I want to set IPStore 1 to use vmnic0 as its active adapter,…and set the other one to unused.…For iSCSI it's required that each…
This course teaches the basics of installing, configuring, and maintaining vSphere 6, including installation of the ESXi hypervisor and vCenter Server using a pre-created environment called AutoLab. Following lab creation, Brandon Neill introduces the core components of vSphere (ESXi and vCenter) and shows how to configure storage and networking. Finally, he runs through some typical virtual-machine management tasks, such as creating a virtual machine manually vs. creating one with templates and clones, working with snapshots, and performing a vMotion migration.
- Recognize the purpose of the vCenter server in a lab environment.
- Identify the correct settings needed to create a virtual network.
- Explain how to correct a duplicate IP address issue.
- Understand the difference between iSCSI interfaces and virtual machine interfaces.
- Describe the steps in the process of cloning.
- Recall how to revert back to previous stages of a snapshot chain.
