Allowing a new initiator to iSCSI target

Post by nico2f »

Hi everyone, I'm new to QNAP and could use some assistance.

The last admin quit, and I've inherited their role, but I'm encountering difficulty mounting a unit in my QNAP server through NFS on a Proxmox Virtual Environment. My goal is to store VM backups there, but I'm receiving this error: "create storage failed: mount error: mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting IPADDRESS:/path/path/ (500)."

Upon inspecting the iSCSI target properties, I noticed three devices connected. However, when I checked the initiators tab, everything was grayed out, with 'Allow connections from the list only' checked, and only one initiator listed.

I disabled the iSCSI target, which allowed me to modify the properties. Yet, whenever I add an initiator to the list, save, and attempt to switch back to 'allow all connections,' it reverts to 'allow connections from list only' and turns gray again.

Since this is my first time working with QNAP, I'm uncertain if my approach is correct. My assumption is that I need to allow the IP address of the PVE to connect to QNAP, but I'm unsure where to find this option or how to proceed.

Could anyone offer assistance, please? Thanks in advance.

NAS model and current firmware used would be important as QNAP has many models and several versions of ISCSI interfaces
Experience counts

And in addition: iSCSI is totally different from a mount with NFS? So if a mount.nfs error message appears, iSCSI is not the issue.
