Yes, I should perhaps have linked this: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/network/BroadCom/R125805/en/linux.htm#wp397875 In my earlier e-mail, sorry about that. The open-iscsi package patched to ensure bnx2i support with open-iscsi appears to be a patched version of open-iscsi-2.0-865, but building of it fails due to: > No rule to make target `linux_2_6_24', needed by `kernel_check'. Stop And yes, I am using a 2.6.24 kernel, and looking at the mailing list archives, there was a problem with earlier iSCSI revisions and that kernel if I understood correctly? (And I was hoping to void using a non-distry kernel, for easier maintenance, especially as the box will be a xen virtualisation server.) (On the bright side, IO throughput with pure sofware open-iscsi is a lot higher than our older SCSI AtaBoy II boxes could deliver :)) > bnx2i is not in the upstream kernel so the support in the distro tools > and open-iscsi.org tools may not be complete. bnx2i is changing its > driver and firmware so the tools support is on hold until broadcom is > done with those changes. I see. I'll try contacting Dell and see if they have some updated drivers for Broadcom iSCSI support, otherwise I guess I should just wait until broadcom finishes their changes?
