Pb to discover my iSCSI targets from a Solaris 10 Netra X1: solved



  • 1. zfs and backups
    Hi all, What are you folks using to backup your zfs filesystems? zfs backup option is missing from my system.. I'm pretty sure I'm not running the equivalent of Windows 95 here.. Enterprise edition? Do I need that? Regards Mark
  • 2. New HP network printers not jetdirect
    I got this new printer, HP 2605DN, color, double sided, Postscript, built in network, prints good, what more could I want? Problem is the network interface on these new printers isn't jetdirect, so how do I use it with the Solaris 9 machines? The old hppi chokes and says it is not a network printer. It supposedly supports LPD printing, but attempts to set that up with printmgr failed. Anyone got a clue how to talk to one of these things so I can print color from my Sun workstation like the Windows users? -- Jim Pennino Remove .spam.sux to reply.
  • 3. Solaris 10 U1
    After install 10_Recommended Patch Cluster on Solaris 10 U1, system cannot boot up . It stops at "configuring devices". And couldn't go further. Boot up with "milestone=none", and did a reseed of "repository.db", and try to reboot again,it didn't help. Just wondering this seems not because of the a corruption of repository.db. The console shows the boot procedure stops at "configuring devices". But I got a feeling is the boot procedure actually finishes then configuration devices and couldn't go to the next step. Just wonder if anyone have some better idea. Thanks,

Pb to discover my iSCSI targets from a Solaris 10 Netra X1: solved

Postby Sastien de Mapias » Tue, 14 Aug 2007 22:36:13 GMT

A few days ago I posted a question here regarding
the problems I encountered to get Solaris 10 to
discover iSCSI targets I had configured using a
SOHO IDE module.
 http://www.**--****.com/ #2236e3787e73b432

David answered and we kept discussing this stuff
off this forum, but he eventually helped me out,
and thanks to him I could solve my problem.

It appears the default name given by the SOHO
module to my targets (iqn.2007-08:iscsi.target0
and iqn.2007-08:iscsi.target1) were wrong, so I
checked  http://www.**--****.com/ 
iSCSI naming conventions on David's recommendation
and modified these names (I added ".com.sun" after
~ iqn.2007-08.com.sun:iscsi.target1
and that was enough)

I then did
~ iscsiadm modify discovery -t disable
(to disable a previous 'send-targets discovery' config)

~ iscsiadm add static-config iqn.
~ iscsiadm add static-config iqn.
to statically add my targets

~ iscsiadm modify discovery -s enable
to enable static discovery

Now when I do
~ iscsiadm list target -S

I do have
~ Target: iqn.2007-08.com.sun:iscsi.target1
~    Alias: -
~    TPGT: 1
~    ISID: 4000002a0000
~    Connections: 1
~    LUN: 1
~         Vendor:  iSCSI
~         Product: TARGET
~         OS Device Name: /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s2
and the same for target0, which is pretty beautiful...

3.Netra X1 hangs when net booting Solaris 10 1/06

  I have a boot server and a Netra X1 on the same subnet.  While I can 
net boot the X1 into single-user Solaris 9 ("boot net -s"), it won't boot 
Solaris 10 1/06:  it hangs shortly after loading the kernel and  
requesting it's address for the third(?) time (the full transcript is 

  Ideas?  Other posts have indicated that not having "anon=0" in the 
dfstab will lead to problems like this, but it's already set.
