If your iSCSI subsystem supports manual target configuration, you can use the Manage iSCSI Targets dialog box to remove an iSCSI target.


When you remove a target, all initiators currently logged on to that target will no longer be able to access the LUNs that are assigned to that target. This action cannot be undone.


This feature enables you to perform a select subset of the tasks that relate to iSCSI configuration and administration. You can also perform these and other tasks using the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator, which is included in Windows Server 2008 in Administrative Tools. Additionally, vendors of networking and storage solutions provide similar tools to perform iSCSI configuration and administration tasks. For more information about iSCSI, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=102299.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477.
