ISCSI over a fible cable
Posted on 2012-03-23
I have an ISCSI attached QNAP storage device that I would like to place in a location that is 70 meters away as an off site storage. I have set up a 1 Gigabyte network link that consists of an ethernet patch cable from the server to a media converter to carry the link over the mutli core fibre then into a second media converter to a second ethernet patch cable into the QNAP device. Using TCP/IP the connection works perfectly, but when I attach the ISCSI connections the system fails. The server can see the QNAP over TCP/IP but cannot see it over ISCSI. Even the ISCSI initiator fails to see the target.
Can any one help me as to why this is so and what can I do about it?
Thanks in advance
