"Before we get started, a quick clarification is in order. The
codename for the x4500 is "Thumper." The Thumper has 48 SATA disks
(up to 1TB each), and it was shipped configured with operating
system using two 1TB disks mirrored. The x4540 is called "Thor,"
and it ships with a compact flash drive for the OS.
"Sharing iSCSI in Solaris
"This couldn't be simpler. In the basic mode, without
configuring authentication, you only need to run two commands to
create a volume in ZFS and share it via iSCSI. However, this is not
the standard zfs create command you may be used to running, because
we don’t actually want to create a ZFS file system."
