CHAP can be configured with a password also known as the “CHAP secret”. The CHAP secret provides an additional level of security between the iSCSI initiator and target. The CHAP secret is provided on the “Authentication” tab of the target properties.
Make iSCSI Targets Ready for Use for iSCSI Initiators
Virtual disks need to be created on the iSCSI targets for Microsoft-based iSCSI target solutions. These virtual disks represent the storage volumes that the iSCSI initiators will use. The maximum capacity represented by all the virtual disks on a given iSCSI target on a Microsoft-based iSCSI target solution is two terabytes (2 TB) per target. In this example, we create a 100 GB and 200 GB virtual disk on the iSCSI target. These two virtual disks will be viewed as volumes by the iSCSI initiators over the TCP/IP network.
