The iSCSI Server module allows you to export disk devices to other systems over the network using the iSCSI protocol. Configuration is done primarily by creating three types of objects - Devices to Share, Devices Combinations and Sharing Targets, described below. You can also edit settings that apply to the entire iSCSI server using the iSCSI Server Options page.

Devices to Share
(extents in the config file)
Each of these is a partition, RAID device, logical volume or file that can be fully or partially exported via iSCSI. Shared devices should not be used for any othe purpose on this system.
Device Combinations
(devices in the config file)
These allow you to combine multiple Devices to share into a larger device for export. Devices can either be joined in RAID0-style to add their sizes together, or mirrored RAID1-style for redundancy and improved read performance.
Sharing Targets
(target in the config file)
Each entry in this list exports either a device or device combination to all systems on a selected network. A share can be either read-only or read/write.

At the bottom of the module's main page are buttons to stop, start and restart the iSCSI server. Configuration changes will not be applied until the server is restarted.
