Softlayer (hosting) provides a block device, but the instructions they =
have are for Windows or Linux =E2=80=A6 the linux ones =
(http://knowledgelayer.softlayer.com/procedure/accessing-block-storage-lin=
ux =
<http://knowledgelayer.softlayer.com/procedure/accessing-block-storage-lin=
ux>) don=E2=80=99t quite match FreeBSD (do they ever?) =E2=80=A6 =
specifically, it takes about a multipath daemon and such =E2=80=A6 I =
found =E2=80=98gmultipath=E2=80=99, but not daemon =E2=80=A6

I did the iscsid end of things, and started up iscsid =E2=80=A6 and all =
iscsictl gives me is:

Target name                          Target portal    State
iqn.2005-05.com.softlayer:SL01SU570747-1 10.2.174.102     Disconnected

or

Target name                          Target portal    State
iqn.2005-05.com.softlayer:SL01SU570747-1 10.2.174.102     Operation =
timed out

so its trying to connect, just isn=E2=80=99t =E2=80=A6 which either =
means the multi path stuff is critical -or- I=E2=80=99m missing =
something =E2=80=A6

Never tried this before, the handbook makes it look straightforward =E2=80=
=A6

Can someone take a quick peak at the Linux docs I link to above and let =
me know what I may be missing =E2=80=A6 I=E2=80=99m going to try and =
push them to writing a FreeBSD doc, so that other clients wishing to use =
FreeBSD won=E2=80=99t be left in the dark from their knowledgebase =E2=80=A6=


thx=20
