In this blog entry, we will cover how to install and configure iSCSI Target on Windows Server 2019.
From Wikipedia, iSCSI is an acronym for Internet Small Computer Systems Interface, an Internet Protocol-based storage networking standard for linking data storage facilities. It gives square level access to capacity gadgets via conveying SCSI directions over a TCP/IP network. The iSCSI target is the capacity of a remote area, which appears to the host framework (iSCSI initiator) as a nearby drive. We will see the entirety of this illustrated.
