Mounting an ISCSI target

Postby onedn » Wed Dec 22, 2010 11:52 am

Hi,

Instead of a attached USB drive, I would like to mount a ISCSI disk which I have.

I have installed the open-iscsi package via apt-get install open-iscsi

But i have errors starting the initiator.

Looking at the logs, the following errors are seen:
---
Dec 23 00:44:04 TonidoPlug iscsid: iSCSI logger with pid=6084 started!
Dec 23 00:44:04 TonidoPlug iscsid: Missing or Invalid version from /sys/module/scsi_transport_iscsi/version. Make sure a up to date scsi_transport_iscsi module is loaded and a up todate version of iscsid is running. Exiting...
---

I looked into /lib/modules/2.6.31/kernel/drivers/scsi, there are noscsi_transport_iscsi modules.

Does it mean:
1. Tonidoplug does not support iscsi HDDs?
2. I can do it via a custom kernel or compile the modules myself.

Thanks!

Yes, the default kernel doesn't come with iscsi support.
You can compile just the modules for iscsi or recompile the kernel with builtin iscsi support.

Hi lastguy

What is your kernel version?

In kernel 2.6.31 and above you need to make the change to the file indicated in my post to allow non root user login.

I am assuming you can ssh as root?
