Open iSCSI anyone?

Fri Jun 01, 2012 7:21 pm

I'm trying to get open iSCSI working. I'm having a tough time the iface is not being recognized as the documentation says. It says that it will automatically detect the driver in the ifaces.

So..... I went in and created iface0 and added the hardware address. Unfortunately the driver doesn't show before the hardware address. Example. I should see cxgb3i.b8:27:eb:d5:eb:dd
but I don't all I see is b8:27:eb:d5:bb:dd

Thoughts, anyone have suggestions, anyone play with this yet?

I could really use some help with this if anyone has expertise.

For some reason the iscsi daemon is failing to load.

Have you recompiled the kernel yet to include the relevant iscsi modules? (by default the debian pi image does not include iscsi support) - This is a crucial step in order to get iscsi working.

I'm not very familiar on how to do that.

If I use synaptic or apt-get doesn't it recompile for me?

No you need to recompile it

For those who come across this post. The directions to recompile are here....

I'm in the middle of recompiling and don't know if I will be successful but you will find this post helpful.
