Hi, my question is the same as this discussion, where someone wants to change the session.timeo.session_replacement value of a root filesystem, which is mounted over iscsi in the initrd phase.
http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg00181.html I am using iscsistart to access the iscsi target in my initrd, chrooting and exec'ing my init to start my system. After my system boots, I want to update the session timeout value so that if my ethernet is unplugged, my root filesystem will remain alive, and the scsi layer does not receive a message that the disk was disconnected. 1) To do this, I am starting iscsid with no nodes defined in /etc/iscsi/nodes, and using command "/sbin/iscsiadm -m node -T TARGET -p IP:PORT -o new" (which I was able to use for iscsistart in the initrd phase). I then see the db populated as there is a directory and configuration file in /etc/iscsi/nodes/TARGET. Now my goal is to adjust the timeout setting of the live session which my root is mounted on, so I am updating the live session like this: "/sbin/iscsiadm -m node -T TARGET -o update -n node.session.timeo.replacement_timeout -v 2400" When I do this, my /etc/iscsi/nodes/TARGET/IP,PORT file is removed, replaced with a directory named /etc/iscsi/nodes/TARGET/IP,PORT,-1 , and a config file called default inside there. I would appreciate any help, I know I must be doing something wrong. 2) Can I circumvent all of this work and simply change the timeout in /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf and when iscsid is started, the timeout on my root filesystem will be set to the value in iscsid.conf?
