    Hi, a correction:

    # lvcreate -l 100%FREE tecmint_lun1 tecmint_iscsi

    it should be:

    # lvcreate -l 100%FREE -n tecmint_lun1 tecmint_iscsi

      Thanks. Had that in the screenshot and explanation of the command but must’ve missed getting it into that one area! We’ll get it fixed.

    No success. This line worked: iscsiadm -m discovery -t st -p, returning,1

    Nothing else worked, after editing the files and restarting services, nothing happened, no errors, nothing.

    Is there something unique about a Zyxel NAS?
