Disable iscsi requests?

At one time i had 3 iscsi targets active on a NAS device. Those targets were deleted from the NAS device, but i still have esxi sending requests to my NAS to login to those targets. Is there a simple way to disable the requests from the esxi server?

I am using the Infrastructure Client to access my esxi server. Also i am seeing the requests on system logs generated from within my NAS. Finally, i dont think a reboot has been performed in a while or since those changes have been made. Here is a snapshot of the system log.

May  5 04:06:19 xxx kernel: Received iSCSI login request from 192.168.x.x on TCP Network Portal 192.168.x.x

if you are no longer using iSCSI disable the software iscsi initiator in the storage section under server configuration.

or if you are using iscsi just remove the servers iscsi target e.g. nas ip address

That did it. Went into "Storage Adapters" under Hardware and disabled the iscsi Software Adapter, then rebooted. According to newer logs it looks to be resolved. Thanks!

FYI- The adapter did not appear to be connected to any of those old targets. Clicking on properties i did see the ip address of the NAS though. I just disabled the adapter all together. In the future i know where to look.

Glad you've got rid of the annoying logs, there can be a few connections!
