Ubuntu SAN
 
Hello all


*


I am new to using linux for storage and I have been
looking for a good how to or documentation on how to make this happen.


*


Specifically I’d like to know how to:


*



Define a LUN
Share that LUN out as an
iSCSI target to a Windows server for backups.
Is it possible to install the
OS on a partition and create a separate partition for the LUN?
Can the LUN be grown if
needed or spanned across several disks and how would that be done?


*


I have done this previously with a NetApp filer and I know
what to do on the windows side I am just at a loss on what to do on the Linux
end. I downloaded openfiler and tried that, but it does not seem to be compatible
with the motherboard I have been allocated for this purpose.


*


*


Thanks in advance


*


Phil

You need to be much much informative/specific if you really want to be helped.

In the mean time, I'll give you some clues (may or may not be related
with your question) :

LVM
EVMS
