I think I'm getting the picture, Redhat and Qlogic dont support open- iscsi. This was starting to become obvious when I had to escalate through several engineers at Redhat because they were not aware of features of open-iscsi and wether or not they supported it.
I just did a fresh load of Redhat 5 update 2, san boot over qle4060c card. I'm using the redhat qla4xxx driver right now and I installed iscsi-initiator-utils.i386 and its still not working. iscsiadm still doesnt detect any interfaces "iscsiadm -m iface". I'm more than willing to manually create all the needed files if I can get this to work. The only features I need to work are. 1) discover storage via iSCSI HBA 2) login to targets via iSCSI HBA 3) logout of targets via iSCIS HBA I dont need to modify any card settings at all. thanks Jason On Aug 18, 2:04 pm, Mike Christie <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > WonderBoy wrote: > > I'm currently running the Qlogic driver for the QLE4060c, should I > > be using the Redhat driver. > > open-iscsi will not work with the qlogic.com drivers.
