[2] It's possible to use iSCSI device like follows.
root@client:~#
apt-get -y install parted
# create a label

root@client:~#
parted --script /dev/sdb "mklabel msdos"

# create a partition

root@client:~#
parted --script /dev/sdb "mkpart primary 0% 100%"

# format with EXT4

root@client:~#
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1
# mount

root@client:~#
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt

root@client:~#
df -hT
