I think that the file gets created by the istgt software itself.
i set that path in /usr/local/etc/istgt/istgt.conf
#LUN0 Storage /storage/iscsitest 10GB
That make me think that it was my zvol.
Well i am glad this is solved it caused me lot of headache, but i have
learned a lot :D
Tonight i will try it all!
regards and thank you both for your time.
