Hi Mike,

thought you might be interested in this. I am using the Sun amber road
vmware demo and set it to export an iscsi target.

The fun part starts at discovery. I have defined two interfaces on it,
one for administration, the other for the actual target. When I send a
target discovery request to the data interface the target responds
with its name (iqn.blabla) and the two interface IP numbers, which
open-iscsi happily puts in its database (that is, the same name and
two different IP numbers, so two entries), like this.

[r...@orange ~]# iscsiadm -m node,1 iqn.1986-03.com.sun:02:8e72afff-eb91-e5e0-de5a-
bce6de1eb109,1 iqn.1986-03.com.sun:02:8e72afff-eb91-e5e0-de5a-

Using the delete option removes them both, as the name is the same.
Needles to say that if you login, you login to both, creating in my
case a /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc device, effectively being the same
target. I can see multipathing here, but not as we know it ;-)

Any ideas? E.g. marking the node as a multipathing device, as the iqn
name is the same?

And yes, happy holidays!!
