Create a CHAP Account for Group Scoped Target Volumes

For Group Scoped Target (GST) Volumes, CHAP is configured at the initiator access level. Added initiators in the CHAP account will be used for GST volumes only. For more information about Group Scoped Target, see Group Scoped iSCSI Target.

  1. Go to ManageData AccessCHAP Accounts.
  2. Click + to open the New CHAP Account dialog box.
  3. Enter a name for the CHAP user.
    This is a convenient way to remember CHAP associations.
  4. Enter the CHAP secret.
    CHAP secrets must be between 12 and 16 characters, can not contain [ ] & ; or `, and are case sensitive. This must also be made available to the iSCSI initiator. The GUI runs over a secure connection, so the password is protected.
  5. Add Initiators from the IQN selection list.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Use your iSCSI initiator software to add the CHAP secret to the iSCSI initiator configuration. The method used to add the CHAP secret to the iSCSI initiator is based on your OS and iSCSI management tool.
