Before we can start presenting data over to iSCSI clients we need a dedicated NIC on the same network segment as those clients. In this post we will configure the second NIC using the web interface.
Go to Network and then Interfaces
Here we have our two NICs, em0 has been configured as management and we need to configure em1.
click the > on the right of the em1 row.
The row is expanded to show more information and options.
Click the Edit option.
In the NIC config window.
Give the NIC a nicer name in the description field.
Un-tick DHCP if it is ticked.
Set the MTU to your needs. As this is a VM I am leaving it at the default of 1500.
and enter the IP address and mask length Of the NIC.
Click Apply with finished.
Confirm the settings in the Interfaces list.
Click Apply changes
And then confirm again
The settings are now committed, but here is another diag box.
We now have a NIC with IP on the storage network.
