VMWare ESX/ESXi iSCSI Management via console

leave a comment »

The VMWare iSCSI configuracion file on ESX and ESXi is:
/etc/vmkiscsi.conf

The command to manage the iSCSI initiator services is esxcfg-swiscsi

So you can use it to make the administration tasks you need, for example;

Disable using the command:
esxcfg-swiscsi -d

Enable using the command:
esxcfg-swiscsi -e

Verify the initiator is running using the command:
esxcfg-swiscsi -q

Scan for new targets using the command:
esxcfg-swiscsi -s
