Openfiler, Free and Opensource

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

I am back in the books after being un-prepared for VCP-310 and was needing some iSCSI practice, well i dont have an MSA or HP All-In-One laying around so i improvised. My buddy Raj ( he has a blog on here also) pointed me to a program called Openfiler. I was able to create a VM on VMware Workstation, install Openfiler, and then create an iSCSI target for my ESX Box. Worked like a charm. Since I had never used this product before, I used this Petri Article, “Use OpenFiler as your Free VMware ESX SAN Server”. Read through it all, its a 2 part post.

Just wanted to share my awesome experience of configuring an iSCSI target out of a laptop and virtualization components!
