ProcedureHow to Prepare for a Solaris iSCSI Configuration

This procedure assumes that you are logged in to the local system where you want to access a configured iSCSI target device.

  1. Become superuser.

  2. Verify that the iSCSI software packages are installed.

    initiator# pkginfo SUNWiscsiu SUNWiscsir
    system      SUNWiscsiu Sun iSCSI Device Driver (root)
    system      SUNWiscsir Sun iSCSI Management Utilities (usr)
  3. Verify that you are running at least the Solaris Express 8/06 release.

  4. Confirm that your TCP/IP network is setup.

  5. Connect your iSCSI target devices and confirm that they are configured.

    For example, determine if the iSCSI target device is reachable by using the telnet command to connect to the iSCSI target device using port 3260. If the connection is refused, see Troubleshooting iSCSI Configuration Problems.

    For information about connecting your third-party iSCSI target devices, see your vendor documentation.
