Hi all


I have blade system, one of amazing things i've discovered is the emulex hardware, now i can login from iscsi emulex bios to any iscsi target i want. But I don't know what happen when operative system starts. I mean, I have a Centos  6.X installed.


Then, I usually do


yum install iscsi-initiator-utils and then 

iscsiadm --mode discovery --type sendtargets --portal


and then, I login in target and format the iscsi device,


but now I know there is installed hardware like emulex I don't know if Im doing right. Is this ok ? Or I have to install some different driver from Emulex to Linux in order to use Emulex Iscsi Card of my server?


Thanks guys

Re: Emulex [solved]



HP driver for this emulex card is not ok. You have to download driver iscsi from emulex web.
