I want to use an iSCSI targeting framework that supports SCSI-3 and VAAI for use as an iSCSI SAN cluster across 2 servers.
I have 2 servers built on openSUSE 12.3 (of course this can be changed) for the moment and am having a hell of a problem finding out how to use LIO.
LIO was integrated into the Linux Kernel at v2.6.38 in January 2011 and is now used as the default SCSI framework in Linux. That's all fine, but how the hell do I use it?
According to their docs all I have to do is install
targetcli from their repo for openSUSE: http://linux-iscsi.org/wiki/Target
Did that, nada.
What's the best OS or best way to get about using LIO that supports VAAI preferably through kernel integration?
