Exploring iSCSI

I spent a day studying iSCSI technology. Here are my notes.

iSCSI is Internet Small Computer System Interface ("Internet SCSI"), an IP-based storage networking standard for linking data storage facilities, developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force. It is defined in RFC 3720.

General information about iSCSI can be found at: It is supported in some Microsoft products and also in UNIX-like operating systems.

My main goal is GNU/Linux, where it is very interesting. There are implementations for both Initiator ("client") as well as Target ("server").

iSCSI Target implementation was started by ArdisTech for Linux kernel 2.4 and lately forked to now preferred implementation The Enterprise iSCSI Target Project. iSCSI Initiator implementation is available at

Interesting technology with several issues ;-) -----

NSIS instalers

Sun developers (Martin H. and Ingo S.) integrated NSIS support into the build process for Windows. I have added support into my build system as well and thus Build-1 of SRC680_m103 is now available in both NSIS and old packaging format.

I have built all language install sets and all language packs using NSIS installer and during some testing with other language teams (thanks Ain) and Windows developers (Volker), we have identified several issues:
  • #i48740#: NSIS: images on wrong positions. The best way to describe this issue is to point you to the first or the second screenshot of the installer image
  • #i48741#: NSIS: wrong encoding of text. In the Czech NSIS installer, strings have wrong encoding (see screenshot).
  • #i49274#: Add Estonian to NSIS. NSIS installer has its own set of localizations available, and we have to map e.g. cs (as used in build process) to Czech (used by NSIS). This is done in the file in the source. The Estonian mapping was not there. This can be the case for other languages as well. If you do not have your localization in NSIS, you'll probably see parts of the installer in English.
  • #i49230#: Build NSIS installation set if NSIS tools are found by configure. There are still some fixes needed to the build infrastructure.
Please test NSIS installers very carefully and report new issues to IZ. -----

Wonderfull weekend below Kriváň [SK]

Krivan in clouds Long weekend between High and Low Tatras was wonderful. It was the first journey abroad with my son. He met (at one place) his mother (my wife), her mother, mother of her mother and mother of her mother's mother (Germans would use the word grandgrandgrandmother for sure ;-)

The sceneries of Tatras were impressive. This one was taken by my wife staying above the Východná near Liptovský Mikuláš.

I have also met with Branislav Klocok, lead of Slovak Native-Lang team, just a few moments before the game Czech Republic-Slovakia of the IIHF World Championship started. -----
