Modifying iSCSI Initiator and Target Parameters

You can modify parameters on both the iSCSI initiator and the iSCSI target device. However, the only parameters that can be modified on the iSCSI initiator are the following:

The iSCSI driver provides default values for the iSCSI initiator and iSCSI target device parameters. If you modify the parameters of the iSCSI initiator, the modified parameters are inherited by the iSCSI target device, unless the iSCSI target device already has different values.


Caution  - Ensure that the target software supports the parameter to be modified. Otherwise, you might be unable to log in to the iSCSI target device. See your array documentation for a list of supported parameters.

You can modify the iSCSI parameters only after I/O between the initiator and the target is complete. The iSCSI driver reconnects the session after the changes are made by using the iscsiadm modify command.
