Goal: To have my Linux VPS serve as an iSCSI disk for a Windows
Why: Management of the storage space on a Linux box and to reduce cost of licensing.
OS: Centos 6 (Target)
Windows Server 2012 (Initiator)
Previously followed guides: http://www.server-world.info/en/note?os=CentOS_6&p=iscsi
Now at this point I am unable to connect to the iSCSI box, I have made my .img file for 5 GB
I feel I am missing a simple step the snippet is included below (Identifying information has been removed for security)
<target iqn.2014-08.actualdomainthatpings.com:target00> # provided devicce as a iSCSI target backing-store /iscsi_disks/disk01.img # iSCSI Initiator's IP address you allow to connect initiator-address 192.168.0.3 initiator-address 192.168.2.3 # authentication info ( set anyone you like for "username", "password" ) incominguser TEST\adminuser password incominguser adminuser password </target>
And the output from the server is as below
[root@Srv ~]# ll -h /iscsi_disks/disk01.img -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 5.0G Apr 16 11:41 /iscsi_disks/disk01.img
And the "sample" IP my server would be on yet a different c-class. 192.168.20.2 for instance.
I differentiated the classes where needed.
On my Windows server upon trying to connect I see I am also getting
The error is authentication, though I must be missing where I am able to enter the authentication, it recognizes it is a iSCSI but does not appear to ask for credentials.
