Create iscsi target with raid using up 100%
#1
Hi,
I'm trying to create an iscsi target but the space is all allocated to the raid5 volume
Is it possible to shrink the raid volume without losing the data or do I have to copy the data elsewere, delete the raid, allocate the iscsi target space and recreate the raid?

thanks

HI,

For N5200PRO, when you created the RAID, the default capacity usage is 95% , which meant you will have 5% to do space allocation e.g. iSCSI.

And after the RAID is built, you can only increase the volume usage, will not be able to decrease the volume usage. So if you want to put more space for iSCSI, the only way is destroy the original RAID, create a new RAID and set the capacity usage smaller.

Thank for understanding.

Targets are created in order to manage the connections between the iSCSI ... You assign logical unit numbers (LUNs) to a target, and all servers

Unlike traditional Fibre Channel which requires special-purpose cabling iSCSI can be run over long distances using existing network infrastructure.

You can also perform these and other tasks using the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator, which is included in Windows Server 2008 in Administrative Tools. Additionally, vendors of networking and storage solutions provide similar tools to perform iSCSI configuration and administration tasks
