Setting iSNS

Setting iSNS

An Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS) server operates as a unified configuration node and allows you to configure and manage the entire storage network, including iSCSI and Fibre Channel devices.


The traditional device-by-device mode used to configure and manage devices on a storage network requires that each storage device be configured with an initiator and a target separately. As a result, the management and maintenance expenses are high. After configuring iSNS, you do not need to manually configure initiators and targets for each storage device. Instead, the iSNS server takes over the initiator detection and management work, greatly reducing costs.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Settings > Storage Settings > Block Storage Service > iSNS Settings.
  3. Configure the iSNS service.
    1. Type the IP address of the iSNS server in iSNS Server.

      The IP address of an iSNS server can be an IPv4 or IPv6 address.

    2. Click Save.

      The Execution Result dialog box is displayed indicating that the operation succeeded.

    3. Click Close.
