iSCSI support for sg3-utils is available from external patches.

To build sg3-utils from sources and activate built-in iSCSI support
you need both sg3-utils and the external user-space iSCSI library hosted at :

https://github.com/sahlberg/libiscsi

This library provides a client library for accessing remote iSCSI
devices and also comes with patches to the sg3-utils source code
distribution to compile a special version of sg3-utils with iSCSI
support.

No support for iSCSI is provided by the sg3-utils maintainer.



Once sg3-utils is compiler and installed with libiscsi support, you
can specify remote iSCSI devices through a special URL format instead
of the normal /dev/* syntax.

Example:

sg_inq iscsi://ronnie%password@10.1.1.27/iqn.ronnie.test/1
