Hello expert, I have configured the StarWind Management Console and added the target + device (tape + tape changer), however when i want to present to the client using iSCSI initiator, I couldn't see any IQN for the tape that I have configured. :(

Below would be my setup:

1. Install StarWind Management Console
2. Connect server
3. Create target
4. Add device (advanced) - tape
5. Add device (advanced) - tape changer
6. Login to the client machine (Virtual - vmware) and added the server IP to iSCSI connector (unable to see any IQN from the discovered targets)


Guys, your assistant is highly appreciated.

What are you trying to achieve by presenting a tape device to ESXi? Could you please provide more information on that?
