Any iSCSI experts out there ... ?

Softlayer (hosting) provides a block device, but the instructions they have are for Windows or Linux … the linux ones ( <>) don’t quite match FreeBSD (do they ever?) … specifically, it takes about a multipath daemon and such … I found ‘gmultipath’, but not daemon …

I did the iscsid end of things, and started up iscsid … and all iscsictl gives me is:

Target name                          Target portal    State     Disconnected


Target name                          Target portal    State     Operation timed out

so its trying to connect, just isn’t … which either means the multi path stuff is critical -or- I’m missing something …

Never tried this before, the handbook makes it look straightforward …

Can someone take a quick peak at the Linux docs I link to above and let me know what I may be missing … I’m going to try and push them to writing a FreeBSD doc, so that other clients wishing to use FreeBSD won’t be left in the dark from their knowledgebase …
