Normally the name of the target starts with "iqn". A "Q" instead of a 
"G" like above. Below you use a "Q", which is probably why it is not 
working. Sometimes you also drop parts of the name.

If the target has a "G" in the node db, then you need to pass it a "G" 
here. This has a "Q" in the iqn.

This one will not work because it is misspelled. It is missing the end 
part ":3t.r5.0", and you need to use a "G" like in the node db.

This one is just mispelled. No ending.

See this has a "G". So you need to use a "G" or fix it on the target so 
it is spelled like how you want.

For the automatic login, how are you settting the automatic login? By 
setting it in /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf then running discovery or did you 
run the iscsiadm in update mode to set the setting? If the latter maybe 
you had it mispelled so it did not get picked up.
