Configuring Storage Devices With COMSTAR

This chapter describes how to configure Common Multiprotocol SCSI TARget, or COMSTAR, a software framework that enables you to convert any Oracle Solaris 11 host into a SCSI target device that can be accessed over a storage network by initiator hosts.

This means you can make storage devices on a system available to Linux, Mac OS, or Windows client systems as if they were local storage devices. Supported storage protocols are iSCSI, FC, iSER, and SRP.

For information about configuring iSCSI initiators, see Chapter 4, Configuring Solaris iSCSI Initiators, in Managing SAN Devices and Multipathing in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

For information about the iSNS support in Oracle Solaris, see Chapter 9, Configuring and Managing the Oracle Solaris Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS).

For troubleshooting general iSCSI configuration problems in Oracle Solaris, see Troubleshooting iSCSI Configuration Problems in Managing SAN Devices and Multipathing in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
