Three fast iSCSI questions

Pugglewuggle asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-14
Using Ubuntu Server:

1) Can I have a partition mounted in the OS and shared via iSCSI at the same time, or does the partition have to be unmounted to share it with iSCSI

2) If it can be mounted while sharing, does this cause any problems to do so? Is it okay to export paths on the partition with NFS or Samba while iSCSI is sharing the partition?

3) Can I share only a folder on a partition instead of the whole partition?
