ISCSI targets on windows 2003 standard

I have a windows 2003 x64 server standard. I would like to setup SCSI targets on the box and share with another server for ISCSI access. Can I do this by downloading and installing Microsoft’s ISCSI software or do I need win2003 storage server OS to do this?

The free download is the iSCSI Software Initiator (i.e. client),
for the server you need the iSCSI target
(http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/storage/iscsifaq.mspx)

Q.      How can I get access to the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target?
      
A.      The Microsoft iSCSI Software Target is available through OEMs as an Application Pack for Windows Storage Server 2003 R2 or included in Windows Unified Data Storage Server.

Another way to get the iSCSI Target is with another company or other implementation like starwind software http://www.starwindsoftware.com/ you can download a trial, but for production use you need to purchase. In linux, there is a iSCSI Target implementation, I know one for linex debian. Here is a link http://www.howtoforge.com/using-iscsi-on-debian-lenny-initiator-and-target

So I cannot setup Iscsi targets on Windows 2003 Standard - It needs to be Storage Server addition or I need to purchase a 3rd party software - correct?

Yes, iSCSI Target only comes with Windows Storage Server or Third pary vendors.

If you want a free implementation, you can try linux.
