Scientific Linux (SL) is a Linux distribution produced by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and CERN. It is a free and open source operating system based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and aims to be "as close to the commercial enterprise distribution as we can get it."
This product is derived from the free and open source software made available by Red Hat, Inc., but is not produced, maintained or supported by Red Hat. Specifically, this product is built from the source code for Red Hat Enterprise Linux versions, under the terms and conditions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux's EULA and the GNU General Public License.
LIO has been the default block storage target from SL version 6.2, which was released on 2/16/2012.
|Source gits||target_core.ko, targetcli (RedHat's derived version: targetcli-fb.git)|
Only the FCoE fabric module was included in the current Scientific Linux version per default.
The user space shell targetcli can be installed as follows:
su -c 'yum install fcoe-target-utils'
Run targetcli as 'root' as follows:
# PYTHONPATH=. ./scripts/targetcli
The Open-iSCSI Initiator comes pre-installed on Scientific Linux.
