Hi,

If I see it right, proxmox currently (5.1) does not really support ZFS via iSCSI on up to date versions of Linux. "Linux" support for ZFS over iSCSI found in proxmox today means "IET", which has been deprecated for quite a while unfortunately.

I've looked into how IET support has been hooked into proxmox and as it seems, all iSCSI providers are currently operated by SSH'ing into the portal and running some shell commands.

As far as I see, there is no reason not to use LIO's commandline tool (targetcli) instead of the old way, where proxmox was creating configuration files that were fed into the IET tool ietadm.

Is anybody working on this? If not, I might be tempted to revive my old perl knowledge and try to implement a solution based on LIO/targetcli.

No, there was some discussion on the pve-devel mailinglist. Maybe it's better to just ask there.

I would really like to have a solution based on LIO/targetcli. But AFAIK, nobody is working on this.
