This article describes how to configure a generic Microsoft Windows Server (2012 R2, 2016 or 2019) based server to serve as an iSCSI target for a Bosch video surveillance environment.
SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) is most commonly used for the communication between computers and peripheral devices, such as hard drives.
iSCSI enables devices to use SCSI over a network interface, therefore it makes a lot of sense for cameras to use iSCSI to record video.
The camera is a small computer that needs a (network) connection to a "hard drive" to store video footage. In other systems this job is performed by the network video recorder (NVR).
