iSCSI target on 2011 Mac Mini Server??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys & gals.

I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to turn my 2011 Mac Mini Server into an iSCSI target. It the Quad i7 8GB Ram, 512GB SSD internally, 6TB Pegasus R6 connected via the Thunderbolt port. I'm seriously thinking about using it for an iSCSI storage box to hook my ESXi Servers up to. Or, if ESXi5 could install natively on the unit and use the Thunderbolt port. Hmmm might be worth hooking up a Firewire drive to it and testing that out.\

Any ideas, or experiences with that?

Immediate kudos points for the souped up Mini and the username . You could try installing trial iSCSI software like the following XTarget:

and hook up the Mini via Gigabit Ethernet to your servers.
