iSCSI and Debian

In the context of computer storage, iSCSI allows a machine to use an iSCSI initiator (client) to connect to remote targets (servers) such as disks and tape drives on an IP network for block level I/O. From the point of view of the class drivers and application software, the devices appear as locally attached SCSI devices. (source: wikipedia: iSCSI )

This page is about installing, configuring and using iSCSI under Debian.

Debian iSCSI initiators

Remember, the initiator is the "client".

Debian iSCSI targets

Remember, the target is the "server" (It's the one that actually have the disk).

  • RFC 3720 - Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI)

  • Tomonori FUJITA (developer of IET target) has many useful resources :
