5 actually just means the error "encountered iSCSI login failure". It is 
just a generic error value to cover all login problems.

There is normally more error info in /var/log/messages like if it was a 
chap error or a login pdu error and what the status/class values were or 
if it was just a connection problem. Look for something from iscsiadm or 
iscsid in there.
