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".
- [:iSCSI/DebianInitiator: Debian as an Initiator]
- [:iSCSI/VistaInitiator: Windows Vista as an Initiator]
Debian iSCSI targets
Remember, the target is the "server" (It's the one that actually have the disk).
- [:iSCSI/DebianIscsitarget: Debian as a Target (using IET's iscsitarget)]
