Been away for a while, but once you go Linux, you never really go back!
I'm a MS admin by trade, but love Linux and Fedora! It's gotten me out of a jam more than once and enjoy Linux in my personal life. Just had to get that out of the way!
I want to build a test iSCSi target as proof of concept for my manager. We will be using some kind SAN technology for off site disaster recover. So far, I have the target built, but my XP initiator can't see the volume on the Linux box. Error is Connection Failed.
Event is- Description:
iSCSI discovery via SendTargets failed 0xefff0003 to target portal *<IP address> 0003260 Root\SCSIADAPTER\0000_0
Here's what I have in test setup:
-Fedora 12 is a virtual host on MS Hyper-V 2008 R2.
-The F12 has a sdb vol (virtual hard disk) and it is recognized by FC12. The volume is not formatted.
-iScsi target software is 1.4.19
-Linux version is 126.96.36.199-166.fc12.i686.PAE
-The iscsi-target service is dead. Don't know if it has to run at all times, but the instructions ask to start it. I'm assuming it should be running. Following instructions from http://www.howtoforge.com/using-iscs...tor-and-target
-Config file looks to be in the correct places on file system, but there is a 'iet' folder with another set of config files
There is a firewall on this build, but I think I shut it off, to eliminate it as a problem.
I checked the config files again and found the ietd.conf file has a X on it and is unknown. Not sure what this mean. Did not see this yesterday.
-Initiator.allow is set to ALL, ALL ( I did not limit to a single host for access and I did not add a username and password to the eitd.conf file.)
Is there anything I can test to troubleshoot further?
