    iSCSI FreeNAS/Openfiler

    I'm looking to set up an iSCSI disc using either FreeNAS or OpenFiler but can't figure it out. FreeNAS seems the easiest but everytime I try to create an iSCSI target I get error code 1.

    It has no error if I create a read-only target : the error only occurs when I try to create a read-write target (which is what I need).

    As for Openfiler I have no idea where to start as it looks completely different and can't find any guides.

    Can anyone give some help for either?

    I found openfiler iscsi targets easy, volumes, add volume, set size, choose iscsi as the type, done

    Sussed it now - didn't change anything. Don't know what I did different but it's now working.

    What application is producing "error code 1"?

    It has no error if I create a read-only target : the error only occurs when I try to create a read-write target (which is what I need).
    Is the volume / device you are trying to create a read-write target from writeable? If a device, is that device maybe already mounted somewhere else?
