please provide better iSCSI size limits
#1
Hi,

When we create a iSCSI target, there's a slider to choose how much space we want to assign. But, since the slider work on percentage values, it doesn't give me exact size values. For example, I want to assign 10GB to something, but can't. 1% = 8.8GB, and 2% = 17.6GB

Please give us a text box to type in the values ourselves.

Did anyone see this feature request?

I just set up my n7700pro and was surprised to find I couldn't type exact values and had to rely on the slider also. Professional users would surely require this ability? +1 to improve this please Thecus.

+1 to this, and also to remove the arbitrary 16TB limit on LUN sizes. I'd like to present a 38TB N16000 as a single LUN.

This is ABSOLUTELY critical. How can you possibly provision LUNs correctly for a with a slider???

At least make it a percentage of the remaing disk space capacity, NOT a percentage of the total capacity of the storage raid array.

Ouch! Why on earth would you need to do that ? Any idea how long a consistency check on a 36Tb volume would take! :-)
Unless of course it is 36Tb of data you don't care about in which case go for it! ;-)
