Use the vSphere CLI to duplicate an iSCSI session between an iSCSI adapter and a target. By duplicating sessions, you increase the default number of sessions and create additional paths to storage systems.

To duplicate a session, use esxcli swiscsi session add -d vmhbaXX -t iqnXX -s session_isid.

d -- The name of your iSCSI adapter, such as vmhbaXX.

t -- The name of the target to log in, such as iqnXX.

s -- The ISID of a session to duplicate, such as session_isid. You can find it by listing all session.

# esxcli swiscsi session add -t iqn.2001-05.com.equallogic:0-8a0906-cbcde0d02-6a445baadf44ab92-vcli7 -s '00:02:3d:00:00:01' -d vmhba36

Rescan the iSCSI adapter.
