Use the vSphere CLI to add an iSCSI session for a target you specify.

1

To add a session at the iSCSI adapter level, use esxcli swiscsi session add -d vmhbaXX.

vmhbaXX is the name of your iSCSI adapter.

2

To add a session at the target level, use esxcli swiscsi session add -t iqnXX -d vmhbaXX.

iqnXX is the name of the target the iSCSI adapter connects to.

# esxcli swiscsi session add -t iqn.2001-05.com.equallogic:0-8a0906-42f9b0401-7d40d28af2a4ade1-vcli7 -d vmhba36

Rescan the iSCSI adapter.
