To install iSCSI Target on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS, here’s the steps I followed:
sudo apt-get install iscsitarget
That will install the target server, but at the end of the installation, you will get this message:
Setting up iscsitarget (22.214.171.124-5ubuntu3.2) ... * iscsitarget not enabled in "/etc/default/iscsitarget", not starting...
/etc/default/iscsitarget and change it to read
Now, try to start iscsitarget with:
service iscsitarget start
* Starting iSCSI enterprise target service FATAL: Module iscsi_trgt not found. [fail]
What needs to be done is to install iscsitarget-source and iscsitarget-dkms to build the missing module:
apt-get install iscsitarget-source iscsitarget-dkms
The packages install and the module is built automatically
service iscsitarget restart
gives the following result:
* Removing iSCSI enterprise target devices: [ OK ] * Starting iSCSI enterprise target service [ OK ] [ OK ]
I’m not going to cover configuration of iSCSI targets in this guide. Your comments are welcome below. Thank you!
The following error appears if you try to include a system image in your backup using the Windows 7 File Recovery backup tool.
There was a failure in preparing the backup image of one of the volumes in the backup set.
Details: The mounted backup volume is inaccessible. Please retry the operation.
Error code: 0x807800C5
According to this forum…
For Win 8 only: The Win 7 back up program included with win 8 does not support backing up a image file to any kind of NAS device (UNIX, Linux) . Internally the program gives an error that the NAS device has an incompatible sector mapping type. You can backup to a hard drive that is attached to a different windows machine and then back up that file to your NAS. Convoluted, but it works.
So, backing up a system image to a Samba share is out of the question. To work around this, disable the creation of a system image in your backup.
I haven’t tried backing up to an NTFS-formatted iSCSI LUN, which might work. If anyone has tried that, I’d be interested to know the results.
