RBD iSCSI Client¶
This python package is a client that talks to the ceph-iscsi rbd-target-api. The rbd-target-api coordinates the rbd volume exports via iSCSI.
This package requires a running ceph cluster that has the ceph-iscsi gateway tools installed properly and running. The rbd-target-api must be configured and running.
pip install rbd-iscsi-client
This is a REST client that talks to ceph-iscsi’s rbd-target-api to export rbd images/volumes to an iSCSI initiator.
