IET – is it really as bad as it all seems

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

After my blog post earlier this week about some of the dangers of 3rd party, unsupport iSCSI targets. Scott Herold of vmguru.com and the Advanced Technical Design Guide for ESX 2 – got in touch. He rather helpfully pointed out that the latest release of IET might actually address some the concerns about how IET handles SCSI Reservation Commands…

This is what Scott said:

“As I understand it, as long as you are using 0.4.15 (released April 14, 2007), the proper patches have been integrated to properly handle the reserve/release issues for IET.  It is still not certified, but at least the chance of corruption is significantly lowered.”
