We are running the software from the open-iscsi website (open-iscsi-2.0-869.2.tar.gz) - Not the fedora package. nops are off, and I'm playing with node.session.cmds_max and node.session.queue_depth to find a good balance. The issue I was having seems to have been related to the async connection causing too much I/O or triggering some kernel bug. The unfortunate result was a complete lockup of the Initiator machine requiring a reboot with the defaults in iscsid.conf. The problem went away when I turned off nops, reduced queue depth and cmds max and used the open-iscsi-2.0-869.2.tar.gz source.
