To disable replication, you must delete the replication configuration that you created earlier.
To do this, select the desired virtual disk, click "Replication Manager" and click "Remove Replica".
As you can see, removing replication will cause :
As mentioned earlier, deleting the replication causes the virtual disk name to disappear, but not the virtual disk itself.
To enable the replication again, you will need to link it again to the second server.
To do this, select the 2nd server and click on "Add Device (advanced)".
Select : Hard Disk Device.
Select "Virtual Disk".
Select "Use an Existing Virtual Disk" and select the virtual disk on the remote server's hard disk.
Note : this is the virtual disk created when data replication was enabled.
For now, select "Unassigned" because we will link it when reactivating data replication.
Now, our virtual disk is known again by our remote server.
Select the HAImage virtual disk from the 1st server and click Replication Manager.
Then, click Add Replica.
Select "Synchronous Two-Way Replication" like before.
Specify the IP address of the remote server.
This time, since the corresponding virtual disk already exists on the remote server, we select : Select existing Device.
Click on the "..." button.
Select the fodler where the virtual disk is located on the remote server.
Then, click Next.
Since we previously linked this virtual disk to our remote server and we not associated it with any iSCSI server, the virtual disk is displayed here.
Select it and click Next.
Click "Change Network Settings".
Check the boxes as explained previously.
Leave the "Synchronize from existing Device" option selected and click Next.
Click Create Replica.
Replication has been reactivated.
Synchronization takes place.
To secure your StarWind iSCSI server, we recommend that you first deny all remote connections.
To do this, select the desired iSCSI server and go to the "Access Rights" tab. Then, right-click "Modify Rule" on the default policy (DefaultAccessPolicy).
Uncheck the "Set to Allow" check box to deny all connections, by default.
Then, to allow iSCSI clients to connect to your StarWind iSCSI server, you must allow them with their IP addresses, iqn, or DNS names.
To do this, right click in the empty space and click on "Add Rule".
As you can see, each rule is composed of 3 parts :
Enter a name for your rule, then click the "Add" button in the "Source" tab.
Select how you want to identify the client.
In our case, we will use its IP address.
Specify the IP address of the iSCSI client that you want to allow.
In the "Destination" tab, click Add.
Select the desired iSCSI server.
In our case, we only have one iSCSI server on our StarWind server.
The iSCSI server is displayed.
And if you want, you can also restrict this rule to a specific network interface (network adapter).
As you can see, the program shows us 3 IP addresses :
Finally, don't forget to check the "Set to Allow" box to allow access with this rule.
The new rule is displayed.
Do the same on the other server so that you can access it when the 1st server crashes.
