iSCSI on Ubuntu Linux

iSCSI is a software system (may be implemented in hardware) to mount remote block level devices locally. It does not provide a remote filesystem and thus is independent of the filesystem you might want to use on top of it.

iSCSI Target : PC that offers a block device to be used via the network by other users.

iSCSI Initiator : Client that accesses the target and makes it available on the local system.

LIO (Target on Linux >= 2.6.38)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIO_Target or http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/LIO (German)

The configuration is done via the Linux Configfs.
The administration is done via the command line tool RTSadmin.
