Veritas NetBackup™ Appliance iSCSI Guide

About iSCSI

iSCSI is a way of connecting storage devices over a network by using TCP/IP. iSCSI was developed to enable transmission of SCSI commands over the existing Internet Protocol (IP) network by using the TCP/IP protocol. iSCSI offers the possibility of delivering both messaging traffic and block-based storage over IP networks without installing a separate Fibre Channel network. With release 3.0, iSCSI supports VMware backups on configuration H of the NetBackup 5240 appliance.

The protocol allows clients (called initiators) to send SCSI commands to SCSI storage devices (targets) on remote servers. Configuration H of the NetBackup 5240 appliance functions as an initiator.

A target is a storage resource located on an iSCSI server (more generally, one of the potentially many instances of iSCSI storage nodes running on that server). To communicate with each other, iSCSI initiators and targets establish iSCSI sessions
