Value restrictions:

Should be in IPv4 format

Location:

System setup/Port main configurations/iSCSI Configuration/iSCSI First target Parameters

Description:

The IPv6 address of the first iSCSI target

Configurable:

Yes

Persistency:

Persistent through AC cycle

Effects:

If the legacy boot protocol is iSCSI or iSCSI without fail-over,and IPv4/IPv6 support is selected as IPv6, and Connect is enabled, this will be the IP address in the root path for the first target.

Value restrictions:

Should be in IPv6 format

Location:
