NAME

iscsi_initiator – kernel driver for the iSCSI protocol

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device iscsi_initiator

Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5):

iscsi_initiator_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

This driver, along with its userspace counterpart iscontrol(8), is obsolete. Users are advised to use iscsi(4) instead.

The iscsi_initiator implements the kernel side of the Internet SCSI (iSCSI) network protocol standard, the userland companion is iscontrol(8), and permits access to remote virtual SCSI devices via cam(4).
