Multihost Access

The array supports multihost access. When an initiator connects to a target, the access control records do not automatically prevent multiple initiators to connect. As long as the access control record limitations are met, the initiator can connect.

In some environments, you may need multiple initiators to access a target. These conditions include the following:
  • A virtual server that manages multiple connections
  • An environment in which initiators on the same computer do not use the same IQN
  • An environment that uses a Distributed Lock Manager
