Well, if you have a really long timeout and your connection is lost, umount and everything else will - not surprisingly - timeout with the period you specified. Your solutions are: - restore the connection - if possible, try to decrease the timeout just before loosing the connection - if the connection is lost already, you may also try to decrease the timeout, but I'm not sure it'll work, - don't shut your network interfaces down when rebooting or halting the system (distro-specific; for Debian, look into /etc/init.d/halt and NETDOWN / $netdown; others may use $HALTARGS variable in /etc/init.d/halt etc.). An example for setting the timeout to 120 seconds: iscsiadm -m node -T iqn.2007-05.net.my:store.backup -o update -n node.session.timeo.replacement_timeout -v 120 -- Tomasz Chmielewski http://wpkg.org --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
