Connect to a target/volume
Even though you’re connected to the array itself, you still need to tell the initiator exactly which target or volume you want to mount on your local machine. To see the list of available targets on the array you selected, choose the Targets tab.
The iSCSI initiator Target tab in this example has only a single volume available.
To connect to an available target, choose the target and click the Log On button. A window pops up with the target name and two options from which you can choose.
iSCSI target Log On options.
The two options are important. If you want your server to connect to this volume automatically when your system boots, make sure you choose the Automatically Restore This Connection When The System Boots check box. Unless you have a good reason otherwise, you should always select this check box. If you do not, you can’t make the iSCSI target persistent after a reboot and will need to manually reconnect it.
To enable high availability and to boost performance, choose the Enable Multi-path check box. Make sure to understand that multi-pathing (MPIO) requires multiple network adapters dedicated to the iSCSI task, and for maximum availability, you should also have a fully meshed gigabit Ethernet architecture for your storage traffic.
Again, if you are using CHAP or IPSec for communication with a target, click the Advanced button to bring up the Advanced Settings dialog box you saw in Figure D.
Once you finish making decisions regarding how you want to connect to your target, from the Log On To Target window, click the OK button. The target status in the imitator window should change to Connected.
This post is related to the issue what we faced today when we replaced the SSL certificates in our setup. When I launched the web-client and access the update manager tab, I get the message "interface
com.vmware.vim.binding.integrity.VcIntegrity is not visible from class
I started off by
restarting the VMWare vSphere Update Manager Service for the affected vCSA: 1. Log into vCenter
using the firstname.lastname@example.org account. 2. Home - System
Configuration - Services - Restart
This did not resolve
my issue... And we tried restarting all the services by SSH/Console into the
affected server and run the following commands: service-control
--start --all Still no luck. Make sure the certs are applied and it gets reflected in the config file. ( verify if the thumbprint matches) root@homelab71 [
/usr/lib/vmware-updatemgr/bin ]# pwd/usr/lib/vmware-updatemgr/bin root@homelab71 [

Before a running virtual machine can be migrated from one host to another there are some mandatory requirements that must first be met:
Hyper-V 2008 R2 must be deployed on both hosts. The first version of Hyper-V does not support live migration.
Source and destination Hyper-V hosts must be configured as a Failover cluster with shared storage enabled.
Source and destination systems must be using shared storage (i.e. via SAN or iSCSI configurations)
Source and destination systems must be running processors from the same manufacturer. It is not, for example, possible to migrate a virtual machine from an Intel based host to one containing an AMD CPU.
The virtual machine on which the migration is to be performed must be configured as Highly Available and to use Cluster Shared Volumes.
The virtual machine's Automatic Start Action setting must be set to do Nothing.
All Hyper-V hosts in the Failover cluster must be configured to boo…
