Subject: iscsiadm login fails when hostname is specified instead of IP


I am logging to the iSCSI Enterprise target and observe the following
behaviour. I am using open-iscsi version 2.0-869.2

The discovery session seems to resolve the hostname to an IP address well.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]# iscsiadm --mode discovery --type sendtargets --portal

But while logging in, this resolution fails

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]# iscsiadm -m node --portal sw01 --login
iscsiadm: no records found!

It works fine after I use the IP address instead of the hostname

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]# iscsiadm -m node --portal --login
Logging in to [iface: default, target:,
Login to [iface: default, target:, portal:,3260]: successful

It's easily reproducible
