Does iSCSI volume need initiators manually installed on host nodes?


I’m trying to set a persistant volume with iSCSI.
It’s not clear to me if all nodes need to be initialized with initiators manually like explained in Kubernetes documentation.

Then why the volume configuration asks for the initiator name, chap, and basically all parameters to discover the target?

I tried without the initiator but it times out when trying to mount. On the iSCSI I see a connection from the host however.

Not sure about the secret name and secret password. Seems mandatory but not sure what it represents.

Any complete documentation available?

Thanks !!

Confirmed. You need initiator and discovery on hosts.
