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.

About this task

If you are using persistent volumes with the management node, do not modify the account name of the account associated with these 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.
