Getting Started with iSCSI

  1. Create an iSCSI target on the NAS.

    For details, see Creating an iSCSI Target.

  2. Create a LUN on the NAS.

    A LUN is a portion of storage space. LUNs are created from storage pool space.

    For more information, see Creating a Block-Based LUN

  3. Map the LUN to the iSCSI target.

    Multiple LUNs can be mapped to one target.

    For details, see Mapping a LUN to an iSCSI Target.

  4. Install an iSCSI initiator application or driver on the host.

    The host is the service, computer, or NAS device that will access the LUN.

  5. Connect the iSCSI initiator to the iSCSI target on the NAS.

    To prevent data corruption, multiple iSCSI initiators should not connect to the same LUN simultaneously.

    The LUNs mapped to the iSCSI target appear as disks on the host.

  6. In the host OS, format the disks.
