RE: iscsi install/boot

I passed "linux iscsi"  and now it straight away takes me to iscsi GUI.
I had to statically assign the IP address to my local host system.
After that I gave the IPaddress, initiatorname.  And I see an error box
saying "No drives found - no valid device were found on which to create new file systems", prompting me to click OK.If I do that installation will exit. 

I tried not clicking OK  and run #dmesg  from command prompt. I could see messages -- attached scsi disk, iscsid: connection0:0  is operational now  etc.

The files /mnt/runtime/etc/iscsid.conf and /etc/initiatorname.iscsi are created.

What should I do to proceed the iscsi-installation? Am I using the latest?

Did you include iscsi on the command install line?

Did iscsi text install work or not?

initrd work is still in progress as well as some open-iscsi related
changes - you won't be able to use root on iSCSI yet, you'll just get the
root fs image installed.

Note that the IP address requested is the address for the send target
command, that is usually the same as the iSCSI target address anyway.

I have not verified install from CD or non-network installs (I did not
test selection and start up of networking in those cases for iscsi

There are still some bugs. From the iscsi screen, I have to usually do
a next/prev/next to get the storage to show up - maybe a race with iscsid
and then immediately running iscsiadm, plus there is an issue with scan
returning early in some cases (Mike C. posted some patches to fix the

I have not looked at or specifically tested anything with FC5-test3, I've
been using FC devel on ppc (IBM JS20).
