Rick Crisci demonstrates how to create a software iSCSI initiator in an ESXi host and use it to connect to a storage array.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll demonstrate…the process of creating a software iSCSI initiator…on an ESXi host.…I'm using the Vsphere Web Client…to demonstrate this process.…Let's choose an ESXi host,…by clicking on Hosts and Clusters.…At the moment we'll choose esxi01.…Make sure that you've clicked on the Manage tab,…and under Manage, click on Storage.…Here you can see some storage adapters…that already exist for local disks.…
I'm going to hit the plus button…to create a new software iSCSI adapter.…Now in the vSphere Web Client,…the new software iSCSI adapter…will be automatically added to the list of adapters.…Let's hit OK here,…and we'll wait a moment for the screen to refresh,…and here's our software iSCSI adapter.…So now as storage commands are created…by our virtual machines,…they're going to be relayed to this…software iSCSI initiator,…and the job of the software iSCSI initiator…is to get those commands over to the storage array.…
So as you'll see in upcoming videos,…we have some additional things that we still need…
