Solaris 10 What's New

iSNS Support in the Solaris iSCSI Target

This Solaris release provides support for the Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS) protocol in the Solaris iSCSI target software. The iSNS protocol enables automated discovery, management, and configuration of iSCSI devices on a TCP/IP network.

The Solaris iSCSI target software does not include native iSNS server support. However, in this Solaris 10 release, you can add access to an existing iSNS server to automatically discover the iSCSI devices in your network.

The iscsitadm command is used to configure the Solaris iSCSI target to discover the iSNS server and enable or disable the iSNS discovery. Use the hostname or the IP address to specify the iSNS server.

For more information, see the iscsitadm(1M) man page and Chapter 14, Configuring Solaris iSCSI Targets and Initiators (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Devices and File Systems.
