21.11.2.  Configuring an iface for Software iSCSI

As mentioned earlier, an iface configuration is required for each network object that will be used to bind a session.
Before
To create an iface configuration for software iSCSI, run the following command:
iscsiadm -m iface -I iface_name --op=new
This will create a new empty iface configuration with a specified iface_name. If an existing iface configuration already has the same iface_name, then it will be overwritten with a new, empty one.
To configure a specific setting of an iface configuration, use the following command:
iscsiadm -m iface -I iface_name --op=update -n iface.setting -v hw_address
For example, to set the MAC address (hardware_address) of iface0 to 00:0F:1F:92:6B:BF, run:
iscsiadm -m iface -I iface0 - -op=update -n iface.hwaddress -v 00:0F:1F:92:6B:BF

Warning

Do not use default or iser as iface names. Both strings are special values used by iscsiadm for backward compatibility. Any manually-created iface configurations named default or iser will disable backwards compatibility.
