Command shell for managing Linux LIO kernel target
Python Groff Makefile
Latest commit 7b01436 @agrover Handle backstores that lack udev_path in LUN summary
Along with ramdisk, the user backstore also doesn't have a udev_path.
Instead of hardcoding plugin names, just omit the udev path and the parens
from the summary if not present.

A command shell for managing the Linux LIO kernel target

targetcli-fb is a command-line interface for configuring the LIO generic SCSI target, present in 3.x Linux kernel versions.

This runs with Python 2.7 and 2to3 is run by to run on Python 3.

targetcli-fb development

targetcli-fb is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license. Contributions are welcome.

In-repo packaging

Packaging scripts for RPM and DEB are included, but these are to make end-user custom packaging easier -- distributions tend to maintain their own packaging scripts separately. If you run into issues with packaging, start with opening a bug on your distro's bug reporting system.

Some people do use these scripts, so we want to keep them around. Fixes for any breakage you encounter are welcome.

"fb" -- "free branch"

targetcli-fb is a fork of the "targetcli" code written by RisingTide Systems. The "-fb" differentiates between the original and this version. Please ensure to use either all "fb" versions of the targetcli components -- targetcli, rtslib, and configshell, or stick with all non-fb versions, since they are no longer strictly compatible.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
