I am trying to use the iser module as detailed in the man page's alternative method to building the kernel.
I've checked both FreeBSD 11/12 and I cannot locate the module.
Is there really a iSER module for FreeBSD?
I dug around for an hour but what I found so far is that iSER is only supported in the initiator. And even for the initiator I need to recompile the kernel because the module seems to not be compiled in the distribution and as far as I read it needs "option OFED" (is it such a performance hit...
I have been able to successfully boot FreeBSD 10.4 over iSCSi using net/isboot-kmod. However, once booted I continuously get the following message.
iSCSI session is restarted
This leaves me with an unstable system as random filesystem accesses will hang on zio->io_cv. Once this happens, the...
we use a Supermicro server running FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE to provide iSCSI devices based on zvol's for VMware.
The server has one zpool of 6 vdev raidz2 with 6 SATA disks in each, the server has HBA LSI 9300-8i installed. Periodically, the problem arises that the pool goes into DEGRADED...
We are using a Freebsd 11.0-RELEASE-p9 server as an iSCSI storage backend for a vmWare ESXi 6 cluster. The server is a Dell PowerEdge R620 with an attached md1220 disk enclosure full of SSDs. Those SSDs are setup in mirrored vdevs and a zvol shared over iSCSI with vmWare which has it formatted...
Hello FreeBSD forum!
I have a backup solution for some Windows Servers backed by some iSCSI zfs zvols I use ctld/ctladm to provision the disks to Windows, and I'm using:
option pblocksize 0 option unmap on on ctld.conf.
The FreeBSD box was originally a 11.0, after upgrading to...
Some background on my environment and use case:
I would like to share my LTO5 tape drive via iSCSI with a server that will be doing backups to tape, but having the tape drive in a more convenient location to switch out tapes. The FreeBSD box is running pfSense and acting as a router (however, I...
I was looking for some info about iSCSI, does it support multipath on a FreeBSD? I have found only really old discussions about that, and all were.. unoptimistic.
Does somebody have tested it with FreeBSD 10.3 RELEASE?
I am fairly new to FreeBSD having made the switch based on a really good experience breathing new life into an Xserve G4 with FreeBSD 10.2. So, I decided to switch out from CentOS Linux to FreeBSD on my dev server.
I was able to get everything up and running with no problem. I followed the...
Have anyone tried the new iSCSI target code that came with FreeBSD 10? Is it working and performing well?
I have a plan to run a replicated Microsoft SQL Server on a iSCSI LUN hosted by ZFS over 10GbE, my primary goal is to take a consistent "backup/snapshot" of the database...
I have a server running FreeBSD 10.2 and a iSCSI client running FreeBSD 10.2.
The server serves one zvol over iSCSI to the client looking like this:

I set up a 16 TB zfs pool (vdevs are all 2x mirrors) to create a "life preserver" array for a colleague who needed iSCSI storage for his 12TB life's work online in a matter of weeks. I see there are different phases to an iSCSI transfer, but I don't see how anything the target would normally...
