File sharing is one of the primary benefits of a NAS. TrueNAS helps foster collaboration between users through network shares.
TrueNAS SCALE allows users to create and configure block (iSCSI) shares targets, Windows SMB shares, Unix (NFS) shares, and WebDAV shares.

When creating zvols for shares, avoid giving them names with capital letters or spaces since they can cause problems and failures with iSCSI and NFS shares.

  • Block Shares (iSCSI)
  • About Block (iSCSI) Shares Targets Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) represents standards for using Internet-based protocols for linking binary data storage device aggregations. IBM and Cisco submitted the draft standards in March 2000. Since then, iSCSI has seen widespread adoption into enterprise IT environments. iSCSI functions through encapsulation. The Open Systems Interconnection Model (OSI) encapsulates SCSI commands and storage data within the session stack. The OSI further encapsulates the session stack within the transport stack, the transport stack within the network stack, and the network stack within the data stack.
