The iSCSI target role turns your server into a storage array by creating virtual disks (vhdx) and presenting them to another server using the network.
At least two servers:
- a target server, which will present the volume (s).
- an initiator server that will receive the volume (s).
The target server must be on Windows 2012 minimum. The client can be a client workstation from Windows 7 or a Windows Server.
In the example below the posts are members of a domain. This is not an obligation.
