SIRIS, ALTO, and NAS: Creating and accessing an iSCSI volume restore



This article describes how to mount a file restore of an iSCSI share from a Datto NAS or SIRIS.


  • Datto SIRIS
  • Datto NAS


This type of restore will duplicate the iSCSI share. You will then be able to attach to another iSCSI share with the same or a new LUN.


1. Log in to the Web Interface for your Datto NAS, and click on the Restore tab:
