I've used software RAID (1) over open-iscsi with no problems in testing, but I had to move to the latest version of open-iscsi - older versions had problems with creating new targets, and not properly recognising closure of connections from initiators. Its probably just that the hardware device is using an old version of open-iscsi/kernel, and could do with being updated. Matthew
