View Full Version : SLES 12 Error when setting up an iSCSI LIO Target Server

22-Jan-2016, 16:14
I have created an iSCSI target using yast2.
After a start systemctl target,
systemctl status target gives me:

target.service - "Generic Target Mode service"

And in /var/log/messages:

And in /etc/target/lio_setup.sh, line 50 is:
echo 0> /sys/kernel/config/target/iscsi/iqn.XXXX.XX:XXXX-XXX-XX/tpgt_1/enable

# ls -l /sys/kernel/config/target/iscsi/iqn.XXXX.XX:XXXX-XXX-XX/tpgt_1/enable
results in:
-rw-r - r-- 1 root root 4096 January 22 15:39 /sys/kernel/config/target/iscsi/iqn.XXXX.XX:XXXX-XXX-XX/tpgt_1/enable

Now I wonder what is going wrong.
