I think Geoff and I were talking about using a tool like from sg3_utils, which sends scsi commands to the target. The scsi commands can change settings or do things like fail over a lun/controller. You are right though. The iscsi stuff has nothing to do with it. The scsi commands are just sent over iscsi. And it would be strange not to have a user friendly interface on the target, but allow you to do it with sg utils. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
