I set the iscsi connection parameter on the linux host using iscsiadm utility. However the host fails to connect to Netapp with authentication failure
iscsiadm: Could not login to [iface: default, target: iqn.XYZ.142251821, portal: X.X.X.X,3260].
iscsiadm: initiator reported error (24 - iSCSI login failed due to authorization failure)
iscsiadm: Could not log into all portals
I tried setting the same CHAP password using System Manager GUI and I get the error "Non Hexadecimal character found".
The CHAP authentication works fine when a non hex value (such as any string without the leading 0x) is set as the password. This makes me wonder if I correctly understand the CHAP mechanism employed by Netapp. Does anyone have an insight?
