iSCSI support in Linux
Yesterday I successfully installed Ubuntu Edgy and upgraded to a kernel 2.6.17 compiled over night from source retrieved via git from the Ubuntu repository. The first boot with the freshly compiled kernel went well so I proceeded to download Open iSCSI from their Subversion repository and compiled it against the 2.6.17 kernel. After completing the configuration of the NetApp FAS 250 filer I could connect to it, map the LUN as /dev/sdb, run fdisk and mkfs and mount the new file system.
Actually it was easier than I expected it to be. Today I'll be working on support for an iSCSI based root file system.
