Easy iSCSI Implementation

iSCSI is not a new feature in QTS 4.x, but it's now easier than ever to build.

As soon as you click to access the iSCSI area in the menu, it starts a wizard to get your volume setup.

The easiest way to get started is to build everything at once using the wizard.

Since iSCSI is not an entirely new feature for QNAP, we're just going to walk through the steps without commenting on the images.

Setting up an iSCSI volume has never been so easy.

When we are finished, we can go in and look at the storage pools, and see how much of the volume we've used.
