Discovering targets by using YaST2 on SUSE 10, 11, and 12 series on iSCSI

If you are running SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, 11, or 12 series you can use YaST2 to discover and configure iSCSI connections. By using YaST2, you can enable the iSCSI initiator at boot time, add new targets to the system, and discover iSCSI targets in the network. You can also view the iSCSI targets that are currently connected.
