 +====== ISCSI_Enterprise_Target ======
 +===== Considerations =====
 +  * Remember that iSCSI gives raw filesystem access to other machines, and that Windows doesn'​t support ext2/3 filesystems,​ so any devices being shared to Windows machines will need to be formatted as FAT(12/​16/​32) or NTFS.  Linux'​s NTFS support is reasonable enough these days for this to not be too much of a problem, however.
 +===== Installation =====
 +  * Checkout a copy of the source from the SVN URL given on the [[http://​​svn/?​group_id=5404|iSCSI Enterprise Target SVN site]]:
 + svn checkout svn://​​iscsitarget/​trunk ​
 +  * Change into the **trunk** directory:
 + cd trunk
 +  * Make and install iSCSI Enterprise Target:
 + make
 + make install
 +  * Copy the configuration files into **/etc/**:
 + cp -r etc/* /etc/
 +===== Configuration =====
 +==== Server (Target) ====
 +  * Change into the **/etc/** directory:
 + cd /etc
 +  * Edit **ietd.conf**:​
 + vi ietd.conf
 +    * Change the **"​Target"​** line to match your setup. The format is **"​Target​"​**,​ where:
 +      * **"​2008"​** is the current year
 +      * **"​02"​** is the current month
 +      * **"​net.sihnon.jiangyin.hex"​** is the reversed domain name of the host
 +      * **"​"​** is the identifier for this target (i.e. disk). ​ It can be anything you like, but must be unique.
 +    * Uncomment the **"Lun 0 Path=/​dev/​sdc,​Type=fileio"​** line and change the **"​Path"​** to the physical, **/​dev/​...**,​ path to the device, e.g. **/​dev/​hda1**.
 +  * Edit **initiators.allow**:​
 + vi initiators.allow
 +    * For testing/​debugging purposes, simply add:
 +:to the bottom of the file and save it.
 +  * Restart the iSCSI service:
 + /​etc/​init.d/​iscsi-target restart
 +==== Windows Client (Initiator) ====
 +**Assuming that the iSCSI Initiator is already installed.**
 +  * Load the **iSCSI Initiator Properties** applet in **Control Panel**.
 +  * On the **General** tab, click the **"​Change"​** button to rename the Initiator. ​ Change its name to the same as you named the Target in the server configuration,​ minus the identifier; e.g. **"​"​**.
 +  * On the **Discover** tab, click the **"Add Portal"​** button to add a new Target Portal. ​ Enter the IP address of the Target server, leaving the port at the default, then click **OK**.
 +  * Switch to the **Targets** tab and click the **Refresh** button. ​ Your iSCSI Target server'​s target devices should appear in the list.  Assuming they do, click one to select it, then click the **"Log on..."​** button and click **"​OK"​** on the dialog that pops up.
 +  * You should now be connected to that iSCSI drive.
 +  * Open **Control Panel** -> **Administrative Tools** -> **Computer Management** -> **Disk Management**,​ or run **"​diskmgmt.msc"​**,​ and the new iSCSI disk should be displayed. ​ It will need to be formatted with a filesystem that Windows understands (if it isn't already) before it can be mounted, though.
