All right, I am pretty newbie to network and storage things, but in my research, we need to use AWS S3 to backup data, sounds simple enough!
So I follow the "AWS storage gateway user guide (API version 2013-06-30).
Below are details I could provide based on my best knowledge:
After all the above completed, I tried to use my Windows 8 iSCSI to connect to VM. It shows as a disk in folder, so I did a initial formatting. But after this, it asks for formatting again.
I followed the guide, but unfortunately it didn't work for me this time. Could anyone provide any insight on this issue? Thanks very much in advance.
It turns out that I don't understand how iSCSI works.
Quoted from Amazon Storage Gateway User Guide:
Each of your storage volumes is exposed as an iSCSI target. Connect only one iSCSI initiator to each iSCSI target
Since I thought iSCSI target as a network shared drive, I let multiple machine connect to the iSCSI target, resulting keeping asking for formatting.
