Although the actual steps for enabling block access for your host could vary depending on your host, use this procedure as a guide for what you must do to connect your host to the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM).
Before you begin
Before you can connect your initiator to the storage system, the following conditions must be met:
- Ensure network connectivity between the host and the LIFs on the SVM.
- Verify that the iSCSI service is on and operational.
- Create igroups.
- Add your iSCSI initiator to the igroup.
- Map LUNs to igroups.
- Use the Host Utilities to complete the iSCSI mapping and to discover your LUNs on the host.
For more information, see the Host Utilities documentation.
You have connectivity to your LUNs.
