Hi Mike,

yes, the problem with the older release was that the "other syntax" never 
so I developed that workaround. Basically what one wants is to try a setting on 
one node or portal first, then if it's what one wanted, apply the seting to the 
(desired) rest of the nodes or portals.

The manpage says:
       -T, --targetname=targetname
              Use target targetname.

              This should be used along with --portal in node mode, to specify
              what  the  open-iscsi  docs  refer  to as a node or node record.
              Note: open-iscsi's use of the word  node,  does  not  match  the
              iSCSI RFC's iSCSI Node term.

How would such a target look like; would "iqn.1986-
03.com.hp:fcgw.mpx100:rkdvmis1.0.50001fe1500c1f20.50001fe1500c1f2c" be a valid

That usage is not described my my manpage:
       iscsiadm -m session [ -hV ] [ -d debug_level ] [ -P printlevel ]  [  -r
       sessionid | sysfsdir [ -R ] [ -u | -s ] ]

(the only one where "-r" occurs)
