I’m not setting up any CHAP authentication, but I’ll show you where it’s configured, if you want to deploy yours a little more securely.
Also it’s considered good practice to separate your storage network traffic, from your actual network traffic (either physically or via VLANs). Here I’m also NOT doing that.
Initial Configuration of the TS5000
1. Connect to the NAS with a web browser, the default password is ‘password’.
2. To change the default password: Enter Easy Admin mode > Reset Password > Follow the instructions.
4. Select ‘Link 1’.
5. Select All > Assign.
6. It may take a few seconds.
8. Configure iSCSI
9. Create Volume.
10. Give the volume a name, description, and specify the volume size > OK.
Note: If you wanted to configure authentication select enabled, and set accordingly.
11. Enter the numbers as requested > OK.
12. This can take a couple of minutes also.
Configure ESX For iSCSI
13. Connect to either your ESX host or vCenter > Select a host > Configuration > Networking > Add Networking > Create a new vSwitch > Add a VMkernel port group (called iSCSI or something sensible) > Assign a free NIC, and give it an IP address on the same range as the NAS box.
14. Storage Adaptors > If you do not see any, select ‘Add’ and add in a software iSCSI Adapter.
15. Right click your iSCSI Adapter > Network configuration > Bind it to the port group you created in step 13.
