QA:ISCSI Installation Test plan

Initial setup

Test cases require at least two devices, iSCSI target (hw or sw) and machine fot test installations (physical or virtual).

iSCSI target is simply server in iSCSI terminology. If hardware iSCSI target device isn't available (however hw device is best choice), it is possible to create software iSCSI target on Linux system.

iSCSI initiator is name for client. iSCSI support in anaconda is tested, there is not desired to use hardware iSCSI initiator.

Network connectivity between iSCSI target and test machine is required, faster is always better, 1 Gb/s in best case.

All test cases describe, how to create sw target for particular action with Fedora 10 (iSCSI target is not object of this testing, let's use stable system). Before any testing prepare storage space and start target daemon with following commands (execute as root):

# dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/disk bs=1M count=8000
# losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/disk
# yum -y install scsi-target-utils
# service tgtd start

The other iSCSI targets
This document describes, how to work with sw iSCSI target on Fedora with scsi-target-utils package. If you managed hw target for testing or if you are using different tools for sw targets, hopefully you are also able to control it.

Firewall settings
Ensure, port 3260 is available for incoming connection and there is no blocking firewall in the way between target and test machine.

You can check any time what targets are provided by command:

# tgtadm --lld iscsi --op show --mode target

No authentication
