Microsoft's iSCSI Initiator
Each iSCSI initiator carries a name (initiator node) and certain settings regarding authentication (via CHAP) and link security (IPsec).
Provide your iSCSI target here. iSNS servers (Internet Storage Name Service) help in the discovery of iSCSI targets unless these are invisible to the network. However, iSNS is only interesting for larger scale applications.
Of course it is possible to log onto multiple iSCSI targets at a time. This can be done using a single network connection, or via separate network cards. We would recommend routing high-performance iSCSI applications over dedicated network branches, which helps to keep performance at the highest possible level.
Note the local adapter choice: Here you may select iSCSI Accelerator cards instead of the Microsoft client. The CHAP logon requires username and password to logon to iSCSI targets.
We selected a rather small capacity when configuring our test target, since it would finish the benchmarks quicker than large storage spaces.
