Do you see this error during discovery? What is the error exactly?

In you can set:

# To specify the maximum number of data bytes the initiator can receive
# in an iSCSI PDU from a target during a discovery session, edit the
# following line.
# The value is the number of bytes in the range of 512 to (2^24-1) and
# the default is 32768
discovery.sendtargets.iscsi.MaxRecvDataSegmentLength = 32768

Some targets have a limit of 64K and there is a bug where we do not 
handle multiple pdus correctly.

In you can 
set the same value and the pdu handling should be fixed.
