Volume Virtualization

Hi all
I’ve manage to create a iscsi volume on a windows machine. So far, so good. I’m not sure why, but the transfer rate is far better than if I just map the drive.
I would like to access my iscsi drive from outside my lan. My understanding is that the only way to “see” the drive in My Cloud app is to create a volume virtualization. First question, am I right?
I’ve sucessfully created the volume virtualization. Now, when I try to connect, I get the “updating” screen but nothing happens. After that I have to reboot my ex4 to have access to it. Anyone has experienced the same problem? Anyway advise to sort this out?

Thanks in advance for your answers.


Hi, I tried this in the past and it didn’t work, what i found is that you needed an iSNS server to connect the iSCSI target to and then remotely connect to the iSCSI. I wasn’t able to configure correctly the iSNS and never got it working.

However, I also found some information that can maybe allow you to connect remotely to the iSCSI by forwarding the ports in your router to the WD My Clod https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd573342(v=ws.10).aspx, as I never tried it I can’t tell if it works or not, but might worth the try.
