Exporting disk image files via iSCSI on OpenSolaris

Starting the iSCSI target service

Ensure that the iSCSI target daemon is running:

  # svcadm enable iscsitgt

Adding an iSCSI target image

Add the disk image file as an iSCSI target:

  # iscsitadm create target --type disk -b /path/to/image/file.img my_target
  # iscsitadm list target

where /path/to/image/file.img is the path to your disk image file, and my_target is a short name of your choice.

You should see something like:

  Target: my_target
      iSCSI Name: iqn.1986-03.com.sun:02:8851b84b-fcae-cbf0-d50f-ca84c7b94b94.my_target
      Connections: 0

Make a note of the iSCSI target IQN (iqn.1986-03.com.sun:02:8851b84b-fcae-cbf0-d50f-ca84c7b94b94.my_target in the above example). You are now ready to
