Configure iSCSI Target2015/01/13

Configure Storage Server with iSCSI.
A storage on a network is called iSCSI Target, a Client which connects to iSCSI Target is called iSCSI Initiator. This example is based on the environment below.
[] - iSCSI Target

[] - iSCSI Initiator
On this example, use a LVM partition for iSCSI disks, so it needs your computer has enough space of disks for free. If not, add a new HDD and create a new LVM partition first.
[1] Configure iSCSI Target.
