The iSCSI Data Services IP address is used to provide iSCSI access to the cluster storage. It is primarily used by Nutanix Volumes to present storage to your Guest OS directly via ISCSI. This IP address acts as an iSCSI target discovery portal and initial connection point. For example, Nutanix Volumes utilizes an iSCSI data services IP address to clients for target discovery. This simplifies external iSCSI configuration on clients.
Note: You need to configure the Data Services IP address in your Nutanix cluster.
