Debian Squeeze iscsitarget

Since Debian squeeze doesn’t appear to include pre-built iscsitarget kernel modules, the iscsitartget-dkms must be installed. This is a source package and will install gcc etc to compile. It should compile automatically.

apt-get install iscsitarget-dkms

Here is a list of iscsi related packages I installed on my secondary NAS:
iscsitarget iSCSI Enterprise Target userland tools
iscsitarget-dkms iSCSI Enterprise Target kernel module source – dkms version
open-iscsi 2.0.871.3-2squeeze1 High performance, transport independent iSCSI implementation

I found this info in a bug report through google after I received a module not found error when issuing a /etc/init.d/iscsitarget restart

  1. You are correct. I don’t think open-iscsi is a requirement since this is ONLY a target machine. I’ll remove it and do some testing later today.

  2. Hi,

    Is there any reason that you installed “open-iscsi” packet? To my mind it will be enough to run iscsi-target only “iscsitarget” and “iscsitarget-dkms”. Please correct me if I am wrong :)
