Has anyone looked into the possibility of configuring the World Edition as an iscsi target device? This would seem to be a logical and very handy use for these things.
I'm keen on this myself. It looks like OpenFiler might be a good place to start…
Definitely a great idea !
But OpenFiler is an all-in-one solution to be installed on a up-to-date machine.
With its 32 MB of RAM, the MyBook machine is pretty limited.
How about just an iSCSI target module ?
There are some infos on the NSLU2-Linux site. iSCSI support is rather on whishlists at this moment.
I've found that:
but I haven't managed to make it worked as I'm quite a Linux newbie. :)
Could a more skilled people help me out with this ?
Looking at the source and readme file for the link above leads me to believe that there's a lot of kernel source bits hooked in around the plumbing. I am going to give it a few hacks and see if I can decouple it from any hardcore dependencies but I don't know if spending that kind of time will result in anything else that might be a better alternative out there.
Anyone else got a run at it or willing to throw some bones into the pile?
I followed this thread but had some BSOD issues on Vista x64:
Looks like a good solution for *nix clients though.
Back to the iSCSI drawing board. Although, it looks like there's some activity taking place in the NSLU2 target branch.
