Hi Ciprian, >From the brcm_iscsuio logs, I didn't see any communication between the brcm_iscsiuio daemon and the CNIC driver. This is a problem because the brcm_iscsiuio daemon will do the initial ARP'ing. To further diagnose this problem, I was also wondering if you could describe your network topology (ie. network interfaces used, which interface is the iscsi offloaded connection, all the IP addresses used for your network connectivity, target and initiator), and also if you could attach the iface configuration files you are using with iscsid that would be very helpful too.
Thanks again. -Ben On Wed, 2010-01-20 at 13:11 -0800, Ciprian Marius Vizitiu wrote: > Hi everyone, > > Thanks a lot for the help. > > The requested log entries are att. and they represent the typical behavior: > most of the cases it looks as if the host cannot reach the EQL.
