Setting up iSCSI with tgtadm (server) and using open-iscsi (client)

service tgt restart

create new target

tgtadm –lld iscsi –op new –mode target –tid {tid} -T {target_name}
tgtadm –lld iscsi –op new –mode target –tid 2 -T 2018.scsi

connect to source

tgtadm –lld iscsi –op new –mode logicalunit –tid 2 –lun 2 -b /root/2018.iscsi
tgtadm –lld iscsi –op new –mode logicalunit –tid 1 –lun 2 -b /dev/sdc

publish target to all interfaces

tgtadm –lld iscsi –op bind –mode target –tid 2 -I ALL

Show targets

tgtadm –lld iscsi –op show –mode
tgtadm –lld iscsi –op delete –mode target –tid {tid}

Setting up the client

apt-get install open-iscsi
vi /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf

At the end of the file insert as follows:
