iSCSI configuration notes

  • When you enable iSCSI optimization, the switch auto-detects and auto-configures for Dell EqualLogic storage arrays directly connected to an interface. iSCSI automatically configures switch parameters after connection to a storage device is verified. You must manually enable an interface to support a storage device that is directly connected to a port, but not automatically detected by iSCSI.
  • By default, iSCSI monitoring sessions listen on TCP ports 860 and 3260. Enable iSCSI session monitoring and the aging time for iSCSI sessions.
  • Configure the CoS/DSCP values applied to ingress iSCSI flows — create a class-iscsi class map in POLICY-CLASS-MAP mode.
  • iSCSI operation requires LLDP to be enabled. The DCBX application TLV carries information about the dot1p priorities to use when sending iSCSI traffic. This informational TLV is packaged in LLDP PDUs. You can reconfigure the 802.1p priority bits advertised in the TLVs.
