I can't speak for Solaris 11, but for illumos, you need to use the
stmfadm, itadm, and related tools, not the shareiscsi ZFS property.

Thanks, so this remains as it was...

Would it make sense to "raise the noise" and somehow get the
shareiscsi attribute working for COMSTAR? IMHO this would be
a nice feature for pools failed over or otherwise imported
between several hosts (or OS versions without a direct upgrade
path, as in my case). Or did ideology of the iSCSI set-up
change so much that a single config option just does not
cut it anymore (in that case, I think several options could
be passed and/or inherited with comma-separated attribute
values, like for sharenfs and sharesmb))?

2) What would be the best way to migrate iSCSI server configuration
   (LUs, views, allowed client lists, etc.) - is it sufficient to
   just export the SMF config of "stmf" service, or do I also need
   some other services and/or files (/etc/iscsi, something else?)

If you're migrating from the old iSCSI target daemon to COMSTAR, I
would recommend doing the migration manually and rebuilding the iSCSI
configuration.  While this blog entry is written to users of the 7000
series storage appliance, it may be useful as you're thinking about
how to proceed:


No, the story here was that the server's old OS already used COMSTAR;
however that OS was SXCE and has to be migrated into OI manually or
close to that, by inspecting and copying configs. I wondered if there
is a simpler way than running "view" commands in one OS image, writing
down the outputs (paths, GUIDs and stuff like that), and entering them
in another OS image. For most of the system settings copying of files
and/or SMF definitions sufficed; I wonder if it is also the case with
COMSTAR - and if so, where is its config recorded?
