So I need to enable iSCSI Software Adapter.

Then I need to set values for the iSCSI
It would be simpliar if the vmhbaxx was the same on all host, however it is not.

Is there a command that can scan and grep for the vmhba (example host one might be vmhba41 whereas host 2 is vmhba38

Then change some of the advance settings including to renaming the iqn to be
iqn.1998-01.com.vmware:%hostname%

So it renames the iqn to whatever the host name is?

enable iSCSI software adapter
esxcli iscsi software set --enabled=true

The advance settings for the iscsi that needs to be set on all host, and new builds are:
LoginTimeout and change the value to 60
uncheck the box for “Delayed ack”

Then chap username/password
and rename iqn
