I'm getting ready for a large Snow Leopard migration and am having problems with the standard iSCSI initiator from globalSAN. After some research I found out that the initiator is just incompatible with Snow Leopard. My question is what iSCSI initiator are you using on your Mac OS X Server Box, please only answer if you are using Snow Leopard, I've already tried most iSCSI initiators for plain old Leopard.

Thank You.

  • Note: The globalSAN initiator works with Snow Leopard so long as you boot the computer into 32bit mode. Use sudo nvram boot-args="arch=i386" to accomplish this. Commented Oct 22, 2009 at 21:37
  • Would save others a lot of time if you list what you have tried here. I, for one, use globalSAN in 32bit mode. Commented Nov 2, 2009 at 14:48
  • I use globalSan in 32bit mode as well. To be honest, it's the only one I could find other than the ATTO one, but it costs $$ Commented Nov 2, 2009 at 18:57

They only one that works right now is the ATTO Xtend SAN initiator... rock solid and supported with 64 bit... they created a new release to support snow leopard!

  • How much did you pay for it? Commented Nov 3, 2009 at 3:33
