I'll have to look again.  I remember that basically I can discover my  
targets just fine with `iscsiadm -m discovery -t st -p <port_here>`

and then when I go to log into those with `iscsiadm -m node -- 
loginall=all` it tries but fails.   If I reconfigure (rm -rf /lib/ 
iscsi/nodes/* /lib/iscsi/send_targets/* and then redo the ifaces) so  
that my ifaces use the nics and not the software bridges, it works  
just fine.

Unfortunately, my test system was reclaimed, but this is the model  
that we'd like to move forward with so I will get another system going  
shortly and I can debug this more.

good to hear that, in theory, it should work :)
