CHAP on storage/ESX hosts

snyderkv asked
Last Modified: 2019-12-30
I'm about to set mutual CHAP authentication up on my storage and then my ESXi hosts but was wondering if I can set it up on my storage first for both incoming and outgoing without blocking any new LUNs coming online? We won't be setting CHAP up on the ESXi hosts until later.

My other question was since all our LUNs are already connected, will a temporary disconnect of storage reconnect them using CHAP or does CHAP initiate only for new LUNs?
