You can create an SR using the undocumented and unsupported "iscsi" type and set the device config target and targetIQN values - this will set up a single VDI which is a raw lun.

Attach that VDI to a guest and it should be what you're looking for?

Hello All,

Since normal Xen supports iSCSI lun as device for xvda, I would like to know its possibility with Xenserver.

What are the possible ways may be hacky to get it working ? 

Since XAPI can now support Ceph as custom drive, how hard it would be to use same for iSCSI ?  

From Xenserver POV, I undestood that Ceph is acting as a SR but I'm expecting to pass iSCSI lun as raw block device to VM.
