Ubuntu iSCSi target - 9.10

first - create an additional HD for our VM of Ubunutu

next - started VM, used gparted to format the new drive (ext2)
sudo apt-get install gparted

sudo apt-get install iscsitarget

sudo apt-get install lvm2

sudo pvcreate /dev/sdb1

Physical volume "/dev/sdb1" successfully created

sudo vgcreate -s 16M vg0 /dev/sdb1

Volume group "vg0" successfully created

sudo lvcreate -L 20G -n storage_lun1 vg0

Logical volume "storage_lun1" created

sudo gedit /etc/ietd.conf




Lun 0 Path=/dev/vg0/storage_lun1,Type=fileio

Alias LUN1

#MaxConnections  6

sudo gedit /etc/initiators.allow

sudo service iscsitarget start

On windows 2003 servers - download and  install iSCSI initiator for Windows 2003

Then Open the iSCSi Initiator and use the Discover tab, type in the IP of your Ubuntu target, click Logon button

When you see the disk in disk mgr, initialize format select extended partition, then choose ntfs as usual.

Tomorrow, I'll put the process together for building a 2 node cluster.  From there, you can repeat the above process in order to present additional luns to your cluster for things like building a SQL cluster.
