How did you install Ubuntu on the iSCSI target? > > My question is open-iscsi bootable with this card or am I missing > something? It does work with some distros quite well. I don't think Ubuntu is on the list yet (you are more than welcome along with other people to get that working). Here is a PDF of how to get do this setup on a IBM Blade with RHEL5 as a base-line. The blade uses a specialized firmware to emulate the iSCSI initiator, similar to what the Intel Pro/1000 PT can do when you flash it with the iSCSI firmware. ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/systems/support/system_x_pdf/iscsi_rhel_bladeboot.pdf You can also do this with SuSE. You will need to pass in the 'iscsi' bootup parameter to take advantage of this. --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
