How to add an iSCSI to VMware Datastore

Small Computer Interface Internet (iSCSI) is an Internet protocol-based storage application used for connecting storage databases from different clients and servers. It is possible to transfer data over local area networks (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN) . It is useful if you have storage maintained in different areas of a country or globally. VMware is a suite of software virtualization applications. VMware data storage manages information across virtualized and physical networks. Adding an iSCSI datastore for VMware requires a few steps to configure. Instructions
Connect to the ESXi server. Select the ESXi server under “Host and Clusters”. Click on “Configuration”.

Select “Storage Adapters” and click “iSCSI adapter” for the drop-down list.

Select “Properties” and “Configuration”, and place a check in the box next to it to enable it. Click “OK”.

Click on “Dynamic targets” and “Add”. Enter the IP address of the iSCSI adapter. You have now added an iSCSI datastore for VMWare.
