In this chapter, we have seen how ready RHEL 7 is for the Enterprise network to act as a SAN server using the new kernel-based iSCSI target server. The management of the server is now made through Python-based tools, such as

With our storage created and shared, we looked at the second RHEL 7 system and how to connect it as an iSCSI Initiator to utilize this shared storage on the iSCSI target. This was managed initially using
iscsiadm, but the connections are persisted through ...
