Ok thanks for the info. I do not think open-iscsi will be able to do anything about that. The scsi layer does the scanning and it creates the devices, so we have no control. cc linux-scsi on the bug report if you make one. > >> This one was the fault of the upstream kernel changing behavior on us, >> and not iscsi. > > Makes sense.

It says not stable on the web page, for a good reason :) There are just too many combos and I cannot back port to every distro kernel, so we try to distribute kernel modules in the open-iscsi.org which can work with older kernels. It is a pain for distros to integrate, so I am not sure what else to do. For Red Hat I have to actually back port the code, and one distro is all I can take :) > >> It is fixed in 2.6.25-rc2, and the kernel modules in the current rc >> release: >> http://www.open-iscsi.org/bits/open-iscsi-2.0-868-rc1.tar.gz > > Okay, I'll try to test that kernel this weekend and let you know how > it works for me.

You need the new userspace tools for all the combos. - You can use the new userspace tools and kernel modules on open-iscsi.org with 2.6.16 - 2.6.24. - You can use the new userspace tools with 2.6.25-rc2 and above. --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
