CentOS is a free operating system distribution based upon the Linux kernel. It is derived entirely from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) distribution. CentOS exists to provide a free enterprise class computing platform and strives to maintain 100% binary compatibility with its Upstream upstream source, Red Hat. CentOS stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System.
The LIO Linux SCSI Target has been the default block storage target from CentOS version 6.2, released on 12/20/2012. In the current version 6.2, however, only the FCoE fabric module was included per default. The user space shell targetcli can be installed as follows:
su -c 'yum install fcoe-target-utils'
