I was just reading up on the enormous amount of articles I had waiting in Google Reader. I try to keep up to date as much as possible but sometimes there’s just not enough time. I just noticed an excellent article of Mike La Spina on COMSTAR. COMSTAR is part of OpenSolaris and on the OpenSolaris website it described as follows:
COMSTAR is a software framework that enables you to turn any OpenSolaris host into a SCSI target that can be accessed over the network by initiator hosts. COMSTAR breaks down the huge task of handling a SCSI target subsystem into independent functional modules. These modules are then glued together by the SCSI Target Mode Framework (STMF).
Mike wrote a really extensive article on how-to setup COMSTAR. I must admit it looks promising, and it’s open source… freely available! Also be sure to check out these pages on the OpenSolaris section of SUN’s website.
