VSICM55 - Slide 06-24 - iSCSI Security: CHAP


Slide notes bulleted list describes CHAP configuration procedure for the vSphere Client whilst the slide graphic is showing the vSphere Web Client:

  1. In the iSCSI Initiator Properties dialog box, click the General tab.
  2. Click CHAP to display the CHAP Credentials dialog box.
  3. Select a CHAP option.

Actually, in order to make the example more useful, it would be better to describe the procedure for the vSphere Web Client. Thus, the required tasks become the following:

  1. Click your ESXi host’s Manage tab.
  2. Click the Storage link.
  3. Click the Storage Adapters link and select the iSCSI Software Adapter you want to edit.
  4. In the Adapter Details pane click the Properties tab.
  5. Scroll down to the Authentication section and click the Edit button.
  6. Select a CHAP option.
Room for improvement:

Additionally, also the CHAP options listed in the slide notes refer to the vSphere Client, and not to the vSphere Web Client shown in the graphic. Thus, as per consistency, here are the four CHAP options shown in the vSphere Web Client GUI:

  • Use unidirectional CHAP if required by target.
  • Use unidirectional CHAP unless prohibited by target.
  • Use unidirectional CHAP.
  • Use bidirectional CHAP.
