Editing an account

You can edit an account to change the status or the CHAP secrets. Changing CHAP settings can cause lost connectivity between a host and its associated volumes.


  1. Select NetApp Element Management > Management.
    Note: If two or more clusters are added, ensure that the cluster you intend to use for the task is selected in the navigation bar.
  2. Click the Accounts sub-tab.
  3. Select the check box for the account you want to edit.
  4. Click Actions.
  5. In the resulting menu, click Edit.
  6. Optional: Under Edit Account, edit the access status of the account.
    Attention: Changing the access to Locked terminates all iSCSI connections to the account, and the account is no longer accessible. Volumes associated with the account are maintained; however, the volumes are not iSCSI-discoverable.
  7. Optional: Edit the initiator secret or target secret credentials used for node session authentication.
    Note: If you do not change the credentials, they remain the same. If you make the credentials fields blank, the system generates new passwords.
  8. Click OK.
