Microsoft iSCSI Initiator

greetings,

If I have multiple adapters on my physical server.  How do I configure the iSCSI traffic to go out only one interface.  I can't find it browsing the initiator.

Thanks,
Bill

Go into targets in the iscsi initiator properties and then highlight your target and click properties - in here you will see the sessions setup for that target - possibly only one.

It is not possible (or I cant see how) to change the sessions once created, what I had to do was delete and recreate the sessions (or session if you just have one)

click add session then make sure you click the advanced button - this will open a page where you can select the which local adaptor you want to use (as well as other things)

All I see is default and iSCSI initiater.  I don't see where I can choose local area connect, local area connect 2, etc..

under local adapter select iscsi initiator and then the two drop down boxes below allow you to select the IP to be used and the IP to connect to - I will try to upload an image from my server

initiator IP is the one it will use to make the connection

Just to be clear, is this server providing the iscsi targets or is it connecting to one.

The point the prior experts pointed to deals with when you configure the initiator you put in the discovery IP (target portals which richy92 posted) to where the targets can be found.  Presumably the multiple adapters connect to different networks and adapter1 is used to access the IP where the iscsi device/host/san is.  This is what will keep the traffic going through one interface.

Yes this is a client connecting to an iSCSI target.
