Re: RPi iSCSI Initiator over Wireless

John, If you're using a wireless adaptor which is supported natively by the kernel and you have it working, then essentially no special configuration is needed for getting an initiator working at least, by the end of part 1 you can establish your ISCSI connections using your wired or wireless adapto...

Re: iSCSI modules for 3.1.9+?

zero10 & dmknob, the issue you're both running into is essentially that iSCSI Enterprise Target (iscsitarget) requires a separate kernel module be installed (which isn't explicitly covered in the guide as this primarily deals with setting up the pi as an initiator rather than target). This module ca...

Re: What distro to use as a "server type thingy"?

Raspbian is fine for pure command-line use, you can simply uninstall the various xserver/lxde packages from it if theyre not needed.

Re: Use initramfs?

Just a note on this, you can happily patch an initramfs directly into your kernel without much bother even if you are updating the initramfs regularly - As long as you arent changing the kernel itself, adding a new/changed initramfs to the kernel on-device takes a few minutes at most.

Re: Quantity Orders (When)

Then you get invited to place an order at which point they know exactly the production quantity and then (in the case of RS) it takes 14 weeks to make it (which is ridiculous). I'm not quite sure where you keep conjuring up this 14 weeks from. From the date I got my order code from RS to the date t...

Re: iSCSI modules for 3.1.9+?

Sure, I can do that as well - once part 1 has been followed to get an iscsi-capable kernel though, setting up an iscsi target is just a case of installing tgt and configuring the target as needed.

Have you recompiled the kernel yet to include the relevant iscsi modules? (by default the debian pi image does not include iscsi support) - This is a crucial step in order to get iscsi working.
