NAME
iscsi-target -- service remote iSCSI requests
SYNOPSIS
iscsi-target [-46DV] [-b block length] [-f configuration file] [-p port number] [-s maximum number of sessions] [-t target name] [-v verbose arg]
DESCRIPTION
iscsi-target is the server for iSCSI requests from iSCSI initiators. iscsi-target listens for discovery and login requests on the required port, and responds to those requests appropriately. Options and operands available for iscsi-target: -4 iscsi-target will listen for IPv4 connections, and respond back using IPv4. This is the default address family. -6 iscsi-target will listen for IPv6 connections, and respond back using IPv6. -b blocksize Specify the underlying block size for iSCSI storage which will be served. The possible sizes are: 512, 1024, 2048, and 4096 bytes, with the default being 512 bytes. -D When this option is specified, iscsi-target will not detach itself from the controlling tty, and will not become a daemon. This can be useful for debugging purposes. -f configfile Use the named file as the configuration file. The default file can be found in /etc/iscsi/targets. See targets(5) for more information. -p port number Use the port number provided as the argument as the port on which to listen for iSCSI service requests from initiators. -s maximum number of sessions Allow the maximum number of sessions to be initiated when con- necting to the target. -t filename The target name (as it appears to the iSCSI initiator) can be specified using this flag. -V iscsi-target will print the utility name and version number, and the address for bug reports, and then exit. -v argument The amount of information shown can be varied by using this com- mand. Possible values of argument are net to show network- related information, iscsi to show iSCSI protocol-related infor- mation, scsi to show SCSI protocol information, and all to show information from all of the above arguments.
