use Arsenal Image Mount as a iSCSI server...

So we can create a iSCSI server in Windows XP/2003/7/8

 

Any way to do this?

 

Thx

That's not possible without a rather major redesign of Arsenal Image Mounter. It is a miniport driver that does not implement all necessary SCSI commands itself. Most generic SCSI features are implemented by scsiport.sys/storport.sys and the miniport just implements specific read/write requests and similar. But any kind of iSCSI server that works with scsiport.sys/storport.sys SCSI ports should work with AIM virtual disks as well.

No directly supported iSCSI or AoE, although I have heard that a few people seem to have successfully tried iSCSI by using other iSCSI target applications with an AIM drive as target.

As far as I am concerned, I would be more interested in an iScsi initiator feature within AIM.

Same with AOE.

Same with HTTP.

 

I.e the ability to mount remote disks againt a remote server/target.

 

Very similar to what we already do with devio.
