[Ltib] Linux iSCSI over Ethernet

Has anyone ever run an iSCSI target on a Freescale MPC8536?

I have kernel GNU/Linux running on MPC8536DS Power PC.

I downloaded STGT_iSCSI_Target from and built for MPC8536 via make ISCSI=1.

TGTD runs on the target PPC but crashes when I send commands from tgtadm.

‘./tgtd –iscsi portal=’ causes 2 tgtd PIDs (2261 & 262) to be created.

I can do a ‘./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --mode target --op show’; PIDs and netstat show tgtd PIDs there and listening.


But once I try 'new' command, The original listening PID 2261 is gone and PID 2262 is now listening

 "./usr/tgtadm --lld iscsi --mode target --op new --tid=1 --targetname"

 tgtadm: tgtd closed the socket


I rebuilt for the x86 Fedora 12 laptop and tgtd & tgtadm run & interact OK. Original PIDs are there.


In addition I created a LVM on the host and the host/rootfs via

‘dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/iscsi-disk1 bs=1M count=256’

I was able to create the LUN on the Fedora. But can’t do anything on the PPC.


Thanks for any help.
