Simple, it's only a NAS device, and not really a file server / web
server / data base server as well. The purposes I needed is to replace
SMB on the network, and iSCSI seemed like a good alternative. The
server in question is a dev server, which I thought would be
beneficial to setup as an iSCSI server as well and connect other
servers to it's storage, and thus consolidate the storage on it :)
