Mac OS X[6] is a series of Unix-based operating systems and graphical user interfaces developed, marketed, and sold by Apple Inc. Since 2002, Mac OS X has been included with all new Macintosh computer systems. It is the successor to Mac OS 9, released in 1999, the final release of the "classic" Mac OS, which had been Apple's primary operating system since 1984.

OS X with the SmallTree iSCSI Initiator v0.6.8 can connect to iSCSI Targets. Using this Initiator with LIO-Target requires at least LIO v2.9-STABLE r301. The Initiator has first been tested on Mac OS X 10.4.8 in VMware Workstation 6, and in Mac OS X on a PowerBook G4 Tibook, and has since been stable and supported by SmallTree.

Virtual Machine

To get an LIO-Target setup quickly with using VMs, see LIO-VM. Inside of the VM, filesystems can be cerated using Disk Utility, they can be mounted, files can be copied in and out, and our testing showed no problems.

Read-only mounts from Mac OS X formatted filesystems in Linux/iSCSI Initiators VMs using the hfsplus filesystem also works. As HFS is not a cluster filesystem, use great care when accessing a single hfs mount with R/W and multiple iSCSI Initiators.

Test and Validation

The following tests scenarios have been done so far.
