Hi Mike thanks for your reply. My answers follow bellow right next to
your questions.

Initially I did iscsiadm -m discovery -t sendtargets -p
And I started the iscsi daemon, from there after it all just worked.

But I do an ifconfig on the loopback interface adding a new IP on  a
virtual lo:0
I'm not messing with the original IP  which is still
associated with eth0

Coul you explain me how I would be able to achieve that?!
How do I create a session to the new IP? Perform a another discovery ?
How can I use multipath between the two sessions?!
