iscsi chap

connecting from a nw6 sp5 server using iscsi 1.1.3 to a SANRAD iscsi switch
connecting to the volume is fine, until I try to use chap. If i use the
chap.txt file as iscsinit /chap=sys:\system\chap.txt connect
ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd then it says "using chap file" but never connects to the
volume. The admin guide is not clear as to how to use chap, any ideas

What's not clear in the docs ?

Go into Novell Remote Manager https://yourserver:8009

Scroll down the left side to Storage Services Group.

Provided you have run ION.NCF (which starts iSCSI on the server) you
should have "iSCSI Services".

Select iSCSI Services.

Click on Security (right pane)

Select Authentication method - set to CHAP.

CHAP Control - set to Local Store.

Enter your iSCSI password as you used at the other end.

Save your changes.

Try a "iscsinit /chap connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" - the first one may fail
unless your iSCSI Target already knows your iSCSI Initiator name.

I have found some case dependency with iscsinit vs ISCSINIT - which makes
no sense to me...(especially as the AUTOEXEC was uppercase).
