I have CentOS v5.2 running as an iSCSI target server and multiple ESXi
servers as the initiator with VMFS. This works great! The tgt daemon that
comes with CentOS is simple to support as long as you know how to use tgtadm
to setup the targets. I modified the tgtd init script to allow me to use
config files. I did not use CHAP since this was a private network. I just
locked it down by IP range. ESX had no problems connecting too and mounting
the iSCSI targets.
