FreeNAS 8.0 iSCSI 2 – Configuring The Target Global Configuration

FreeNAS 8.0 iSCSI 2 – Configuring The Target Global Configuration

The next step in configuring iSCSI on a FreeNAS Version 8.0 RELEASE server is to configure the Target Global Configuration.  To configure the Target Global Configuration perform the following steps :-

  • Logon to the FreeNAS Web Console as an administrative account
  • Expand Services in the left hand pane and then expand iSCSI
  • Expand the Target Global Configuration branch
  • Either configure the Base Name to something more meaningful for your environment or leave it set as the suggested value
  • Leave Discovery Auth Method and Discovery Auth Group as None.  This allows anonymous discovery of the iSCSI Target from all initiators.
  • Tick the Enable LUC (Logical Unit Controller) checkbox
  • Configure the Controller IP Address as 127.0.0.1
  • Configure the Controller TCP Port as 3261
  • Configure the Controller Authorised Netmask as 255.255.255.0
  • Configure the Controller Auth Method as CHAP
  • Configure the Controller Auth Group as 1 (The Authorised Access Group setup in the previous article)
  • Click on OK to save the Target Global Configuration
