target-isns - Man Page

iSNS client for the Linux LIO iSCSI target

Synopsis

target-isns [OPTION]

Description

target-isns allows registering LIO iSCSI targets with an iSNS server.

The Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS, RFC 4171) protocol makes easier to discover, manage and configure iSCSI devices.

With iSNS, iSCSI targets can be registered with a central iSNS server and initiators can be configured to discover the targets by asking the iSNS server.

Options

-i, --isns-server=HOSTNAME

set the hostname or IP address of the iSNS server

-p, --isns-port=PORT

set the port number of the iSNS server (default iSNS port number is 3205)

-d, --debug

increase the debugging level (implies --foreground)

-f, --foreground

run in the foreground

-s, --configfs-iscsi-path=PATH

use alternate sys configfs iscsi path

-v, --version

print version information and exit

-h, --help

print this help message and exit

/etc/target-isns.conf is the default configuration file.

The following parameters can be set in the configuration file:

isns_server=HOSTNAME
