Usage Guidelines

  • Running this command interrupts all services associated with the specified initiator.
  • Before running this command, ensure that all services associated with the specified initiator are stopped.
  • Initiators and targets are relative. In the scenario where storage systems A and B connect to each other in iSCSI mode, from the perspective of storage system A, storage system A is the initiator and storage system B is the target. Likewise, from the perspective of storage system B, storage system B is the initiator and storage system A is the target.
  • The first six fields of an initiator name cannot be changed.


To change the name's last field of the initiator configured for controller 0A to configa, run thefollowing command:

admin:/>change iscsi initiator_name controller=0A iscsi_name=configa 
Command executed successfully.
