SCSI-TARGET-UTILS

Preface
-------------
This shows a simple example to set up some targets.

See man tgt-admin and the example /etc/tgt/targets.conf
file for how to setup a persistent configuration that is
started when the tgtd service is started (when "service tgtd start"
is run).

Starting the daemon
-------------
The iSCSI target driver works with the 2.6.X kernels.

Try the following commands:

host:~/tgt$ su
host:~/tgt# service tgtd start


Configuration
-------------
When started, the tgtd service will setup targets defined in
/etc/tgt/targets.conf. To manually configure a target tgtadm
or tgt-admin can be used.

The following example creates a target with id 1 (the iqn is
iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz) and adds a
logical unit (backed by /dev/hdc1) with lun 1.

Let's create one target devce.

host:~/tgt$ su
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode target --tid 1 -T iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz

You can get the current configuration:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
    Account information:
    ACL information:


The controller device for management with lun 0 was created
automatically. You can't remove it.

Now it's time to add a logical unit to the target:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode logicalunit --tid 1 --lun 1 -b /dev/hdc1

You can get the current configuration:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
    ACL information:


If you don't need to configure this target any more, enable the target
to accept any initiators:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode target --tid 1 -I ALL
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
    ACL information:
        ALL


Note "ACL information" section. "ALL" means that this target accepts
any initiators. The ACL feature also provides the access control based
on initiators' addresses.

First, let's remove "ALL" options:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op unbind --mode target --tid 1 -I ALL
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
    ACL information:


Here are some examples:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode target --tid 1 -I 192.0.2.229
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode target --tid 1 -I 198.51.100.0/24
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
    ACL information:
        192.0.2.229
        198.51.100.0/24


You can add lots of logical units:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode logicalunit --tid 1 --lun 2 -b /dev/hdd1
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
        LUN: 2
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:2
            SCSI SN: beaf12
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdd1
    Account information:
    ACL information:


You can get iSCSI parameters of the target:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target --tid 1
MaxRecvDataSegmentLength=8192
MaxXmitDataSegmentLength=8192
HeaderDigest=None
DataDigest=None
InitialR2T=Yes
MaxOutstandingR2T=1
ImmediateData=Yes
FirstBurstLength=65536
MaxBurstLength=262144
DataPDUInOrder=Yes
DataSequenceInOrder=Yes
ErrorRecoveryLevel=0
IFMarker=No
OFMarker=No
DefaultTime2Wait=2
DefaultTime2Retain=20
OFMarkInt=Reject
IFMarkInt=Reject
MaxConnections=1


You can chage iSCSI parameters like the folloing (e.g. set
MaxRecvDataSegmentLength to 16384):

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --mode target --op update --tid 1 --name MaxRecvDataSegmentLength --value 16384

You can get iSCSI parameters again to see it change:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target --tid 1
MaxRecvDataSegmentLength=16384
MaxXmitDataSegmentLength=8192
HeaderDigest=None
DataDigest=None
InitialR2T=Yes
MaxOutstandingR2T=1
ImmediateData=Yes
FirstBurstLength=65536
MaxBurstLength=262144
DataPDUInOrder=Yes
DataSequenceInOrder=Yes
ErrorRecoveryLevel=0
IFMarker=No
OFMarker=No
DefaultTime2Wait=2
DefaultTime2Retain=20
OFMarkInt=Reject
IFMarkInt=Reject
MaxConnections=1


The following is another example to enable header digest:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --mode target --op update --tid 1 --name HeaderDigest --value CRC32C

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target --tid 1
MaxRecvDataSegmentLength=16384
MaxXmitDataSegmentLength=8192
HeaderDigest=CRC32C
DataDigest=None
InitialR2T=Yes
MaxOutstandingR2T=1
ImmediateData=Yes
FirstBurstLength=65536
MaxBurstLength=262144
DataPDUInOrder=Yes
DataSequenceInOrder=Yes
ErrorRecoveryLevel=0
IFMarker=No
OFMarker=No
DefaultTime2Wait=2
DefaultTime2Retain=20
OFMarkInt=Reject
IFMarkInt=Reject
MaxConnections=1

The target accepts CRC32C and None. Currently, there is no way to
configure a target to accept only CRC32C.


Authentication
-------------
Let's create a new account:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode account --user fujita --password tomo
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode account
Account list:
    fujita

You can assign this account to any targets:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode account --tid 1 --user fujita
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
        fujita
    ACL information:
        ALL


You can set up an outgoing account. First, you need to create a new
account like the previous example:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode account --user hoge --password deadbeaf
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode account
Account list:
    hoge
    fujita
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op bind --mode account --tid 1 --user hoge --outgoing
host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
        fujita
        hoge (outgoing)
    ACL information:
        ALL


Initiator Information
-------------
After the target accepts initiators, the system information would be
something like the followings:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
        I_T nexus: 2
            Initiator: iqn.1987-05.com.cisco:01.4438aca09387
            Connection: 0
                IP Address: 192.0.2.115
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
    ACL information:
        ALL


One initiator (192.0.2.113) logs in now. Let's try again:

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target
Target 1: iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.amiens.sys1.xyz
    System information:
        Driver: iscsi
        Status: running
    I_T nexus information:
        I_T nexus: 2
            Initiator: iqn.1987-05.com.cisco:01.4438aca09387
            Connection: 0
                IP Address: 192.0.2.115
        I_T nexus: 3
            Initiator: iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft:kernel
            Connection: 1
                IP Address: 192.0.2.113
    LUN information:
        LUN: 0
            Type: controller
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:0
            SCSI SN: beaf10
            Size: 0
            Backing store: No backing store
        LUN: 1
            Type: disk
            SCSI ID: deadbeaf1:1
            SCSI SN: beaf11
            Size: 55G
            Backing store: /dev/hdc1
    Account information:
    ACL information:
        ALL


Now we have two initiators. You can see the parameters that the target
and initiator negotiated (use the values follows "I_T nexus:"):

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode session --tid 1 --sid 3
MaxRecvDataSegmentLength=8192
MaxXmitDataSegmentLength=8192
HeaderDigest=None
DataDigest=None
InitialR2T=Yes
MaxOutstandingR2T=1
ImmediateData=Yes
FirstBurstLength=65536
MaxBurstLength=262144
DataPDUInOrder=Yes
DataSequenceInOrder=Yes
ErrorRecoveryLevel=0
IFMarker=No
OFMarker=No
DefaultTime2Wait=2
DefaultTime2Retain=20
OFMarkInt=Reject
IFMarkInt=Reject
MaxConnections=1


Performance tips
-------------
If you need multiple logical units, you had better create multiple
targets including one logical unit instead of creating one target
including multiple logical units.


Shutdown
-------------
host:~/tgt# killall -9 tgtd

We will support better methods later.


iSNS
-------------
iSNS support is still experimental.

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode sys
iSNS:
    iSNS=Off
    iSNSServerIP=
    iSNSServerPort=3205
    iSNSAccessControl=Off

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --op update --mode sys --name iSNSServerIP -v 192.0.2.113

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --op update --mode sys --name iSNS -v On

host:~/tgt# ./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode sys
iSNS:
    iSNS=On
    iSNSServerIP=192.0.2.113
    iSNSServerPort=3205
    iSNSAccessControl=Off

Now you are ready to add targets. Now there are some limitations:

- once you enable iSNS, you can't disable it.
- you need to enable iSNS before adding targets.
