Description

The Set-IscsiServerTarget cmdlet modifies settings for the iSCSi target and returns the corresponding iSCSI Target object if the PassThru parameter is specified.

Examples

Example 1: Remove all initiators associated with a target

PS C:\> Set-IscsiServerTarget -TargetName "Test" -InitiatorId @()

This example removes all of the initiators that are associated with the target named Test.

Example 2: Modify a description for a target

PS C:\> Set-IscsiServerTarget -TargetName "TargetOne" -Description "Target for initiator Appsvr"

This example sets the description for a target named TargetOne to Target for initiator Appsvr.

Example 3: Configure forward CHAP

PS C:\> $password = ConvertTo-SecureString -String "passwordpass" -AsPlainText -Force



PS C:\> $chap = New-Object -ComObject System.Management.Automation.PSCredential("user", $password)



PS C:\> Set-IscsiServerTarget -TargetName "T1" -EnableChap $True -Chap $chap

This example enables and sets the forward CHAP on a target named T1 with the credentials user and password.

Example 4: Assign initiator IDs to a target

PS C:\> Set-IscsiServerTarget -TargetName "Test" -InitiatorId @("IPAddress:10.10.1.10","IPAddress:10.10.1.11")

This example assigns more IDs to the same target.

Example 5: Assigns a target to all initiators that attempt to connect to it

PS C:\> Set-IscsiServerTarget -TargetName "Test" -InitiatorId "IQN:*"

This example assigns the target to all initiators that attempt to connect to it. Because no validation is performed the iSCSI target when an initiator makes a connection, be very cautious when you use this configuration. It is most useful when troubleshooting connection issues, because it removes the risk of Target-Initiator assignment errors.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Accepts an iSCSI target object from the input pipeline.

Type:IscsiServerTarget
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-TargetName

Specifies the name of the iSCSI target. The target name cannot be changed here. This parameter can be used to filter out the iSCSI Target objects.

Type:String
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-Chap

Specifies the settings for Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) user name and secret. Use this parameter in combination with the EnableChap parameter if the CHAP is not enabled.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ComputerName

Specifies the computer name, or IP address, of the remote computer, if this cmdlet is run on a remote computer.

Specifies the cluster resource group network name, or cluster node name, if this cmdlet is run on a cluster configuration.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies the credentials when connecting to a remote computer.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Description

Specifies a description for the iSCSI target.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Enable

Determines whether the specified iSCSI target is enabled or disabled.

If you specify a value of $True, the target is enabled. If the target is already enabled, no action occurs.

If you specify a value of $False, the target is disabled. If the target is already disabled, no action occurs.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EnableChap

Specifies whether CHAP is enabled for the iSCSI target.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EnableReverseChap

Specifies whether reverse CHAP is enabled for the iSCSI target.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EnforceIdleTimeoutDetection

Specifies whether to enforce idle time-out detection.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-FirstBurstLength

Specifies the length of the first burst.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InitiatorIds

Specifies the iSCSI initiator identifiers (IDs) to which the iSCSI target is assigned.

To assign a LUN or VHD to an iSCSI initiator, an iSCSI target is first created. After the target is assigned to the initiator, a LUN is associated with the target. The format of this parameter is IdType:Value. The acceptable values for this parameter are: DNSName, IPAddress, IPv6Address, IQN, and MACAddress.

Type:InitiatorId[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MaxBurstLength

Specifies the maximum burst length.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MaxReceiveDataSegmentLength

Specifies the maximum receiver data segment length.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ReceiveBufferCount

Specifies the receiver buffer count.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ReverseChap

Specifies the reverse CHAP user name and secret. Use this parameter in combination with the EnableReverseChap parameter if the Reverse CHAP is not enabled.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-TargetIqn

Specifies the target iSCSI Qualified Name (IQN).

Type:Iqn
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
