DSM 5.1 update 4: Create and use iSCSI LUN


Recommended Posts

I've got an issue with sharing a iSCSI LUN as the drive. I've I map it to the LUN as a block device, I can create it but I cannot share it and no client can connect. If I create a thin provisioned file, then it all works as normal. Is this an issue with the boot system or just likely to be a problem at my end?

File-based LUNs can be thick-provisioned if you prefer it and are also hardware accelerated.

Also you can use NFS Shares which gives you an IO-Advantage over iSCSI.

 

so, just of curiosity - what kind of "applications" are in need of blocked based LUNs ?
