  2. Thanks. Worked great on Ubuntu 8.04 server. Connected to it with globalSAN on OS X. Yay!

  3. I follow most of the steps except, I am doing it in CLI way. The question is, for the ISCSI target, after the installation of iscsitarget and iscsitarget-source, is there a need to build the iscsitarget kernel module by hand? I installed both packages using aptitude install iscsitarget iscsitarget-source. The problem I came across is: the iscsi-trgt kernel model not found when I try to /etc/init.d/iscsitarget start. Maybe the synaptic package manager took care of the kernel building?

  4. […] I was surprised how easy it was to get all this set up. I broadly followed the instructions here. […]

  5. Without using USB ? Where was USB involved? How on earth would this be achieved with USB instead?

    I don’t get this article. Sloppy use of terminology (virtual groups? You can ‘get around that’? C’me on)

    I have read this and still don’t get your point. Some useful tidbits but a strange article
