Enabling or disabling the iSCSI service on storage system interfaces

You can use System Manager to control which network interfaces are used for iSCSI communication by enabling or disabling the interfaces. When the iSCSI service is enabled, iSCSI connections and requests are accepted over those network interfaces that are enabled for iSCSI, but not over disabled interfaces.

Before you begin

You must have terminated any outstanding iSCSI connections and sessions currently using the interface. By default, the iSCSI service is enabled on all Ethernet interfaces after you enable the iSCSI license.


  1. Expand the Storage Virtual Machines hierarchy in the left navigation pane.
  2. In the navigation pane, select the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM), and click Configuration > Network > NIS .
  3. In the iSCSI Interfaces area, select the interface on which you want to enable or disable the iSCSI service.
  4. Click Enable or Disable, as required.
