Description

255 targets ought to be enough for anybody, right? Well, perhaps not :-)

In cloud environments with a lot of guests where you're doing a 1:1 mapping between target and guest, you can quickly hit the 255 limit. We (EveryCity) just did. :-/

We knew this day would come but didn't think we'd hit it so soon, and now we have a SAN which has vastly more storage than we can utilise.

I'm not sure how difficult/easy this would be to up, but it might be useful for Nexenta who no doubt have customers who would like > 255 targets.
