VMware ESXi Initiator iSCSI settings

Applicable to ESXi versions : All 

When using VMware ESXi systems with Zadara VPSAs, we recommend that the iSCSI defaults listed are all increased.

  • LoginRetryMax
  • NoopTimeout
  • RecoveryTimeout

Also note that after modification you must reboot the ESXi Host to enforce these settings.


Suggested values are ...

LoginRetryMax       - 8          (min: 0 - max: 64) 

NoopTimeout         - 120 seconds (ie: 2 minutes)

RecoveryTimeout   - 120 seconds (ie: 2 minutes)
