Parameters

Parameter Description
iscsiTarget

The iSCSI target for which you want to set properties. Enclose the userLabel in double quotation marks (" "). You must also enclose the userLabel in square brackets ([ ]) if the user label is a target alias or angle brackets (< >) if the user label is an iSCSI Qualified Name (IQN).

authenticationMethod The means of authenticating your iSCSI session.
chapSecret The security key that you want to use to authenticate a peer connection.
targetAlias The new name that you want to use for the target. Enclose the name in double quotation marks (" ").

Notes

Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) is a protocol that authenticates the peer of a connection. CHAP is based upon the peers sharing a secret. A secret is a security key that is similar to a password.

Use the chapSecret parameter to set up the security keys for initiators that require a mutual authentication. The CHAP secret must be between 12 characters and 57 characters. This table lists the valid characters.
