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.

 

Recommended values are ...

LoginRetryMax: 8 (min: 0 - max: 64) 

NoopTimeout: 

  • For versions prior to VMware ESXi 6.5.0, 5969303 - 120 seconds
  • For VMware ESXi 6.5.0, 5969303 and onwards - 30 seconds

RecoveryTimeout - 120 seconds

    I believe VMWare has decreased the maximum value of the NoopTimeOut field.

    Please re-evaluate this procedure.
