Yes,I am having all the targets marked as node.startup=automatic.

No,I am not running 'iscsiadm discovery' command at startup.

User will specify IP addr for discovering targets.discovery command
followed by login command for particular target selected by I
will fire 'iscsiadm update command to set node.startup as automatic'
for this

Yeah.This worked for me.I specified 'node.startup=manual' in
so running update command to change it to 'automatic' only on login(or
I will give option for persistent connection across reboot).
But my problem these changes vanish after another discovery command.

I login to one target say TAR1, from 30.51 and fired update command to
change 'node.startup' to 'automatic'.
and then after some time,If I want to login to another target from
30.51,I need to fire discovery command,which will make 'node.startup'
of TAR1 changed to 'manual' again due to 'iscsid.conf'.

So what can be the solution for this?
How can I stop discovery command overwriting previous configuration?
or I need to again fire 'update command'(for all those logged on that
IP) after repeated discovery command?
