[pve-devel] [PATCH storage 0/2] Add SCST provider to ZFS over iSCSI

SCTS target can be installed on Proxmox node with ZFS

sudo apt-get install subversion quilt dkms gawk build-essential flex bison automake autoconf devscripts pve-headers
svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/scst/svn/trunk scst-trunk
cd scst-trunk
make dpkg
cd dpkg
sudo dpkg -i iscsi-scst_*_amd64.deb scst-dkms_*_all.deb scstadmin_*_amd64.deb 

After installation SCST requires at least one empty iSCSI target to be created.

So /etc/scst.conf file may contain something like this:

        enabled 1
        TARGET iqn.2006-10.com.scst:orion {
                enabled 1
                rel_tgt_id 1

Block size option in the target configuration affects only ZFS. I tried to syncronize SCST block size and ZFS block size,
but qemu-image fails to convert such disks. It looks like a qemu bug. It may convert disks < 2GB but will fail on bigger virtual disks.
So SCST creates volumes with 512 block size.

  add SCST provider to ZFS over iSCSI storage type
  fix scstadmin path to support installation from deb packages
