Unfortunately no. To make things worse, if you select your initiator is 
you are not able to set up CHAP at the target. I played a bit with it, and 
sendtargets discovery works with CHAP, or it always succeeds. Logging in with 
would not work (once the Initiator uses CHAP, the login is denied).

On that way I found that I lack documentation on the various options settable 
open-iscsi in the config files.

Also if you change you mind on CHAP, a new discovery is not enough; you'll have 
remove the discovered status files. Could that do any serious damage?
