Configure iSCSI Target
2015/05/06
 
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   ] |10.0.0.30 | 10.0.0.31| [ iSCSI Initiator  ] |
|     dlp.srv.world    +----------+----------+   client.srv.world   |
|                      |                     |                      |
+----------------------+                     +----------------------+
