I've searched through archives and lots of places, but have had no
success in finding the answer to the following conundrum:

- I set up 2 scsi targets using tgtd provided in scsi-target-utils
put them on separate control-ports, so that I can keep backing-store
organized.  The two instances of tgtd are listening on ports 3260
3261 resp.  There are 4 LUNs on each target, which show up as being

- when I do discovery on the initiator node, I succeed in performing
discovery on the portal with port 3260, and logins succeed.
on the port 3261 portal appears to succeed, but when I try logins
fail with the following:

Logging in to [iface: default, target:
iqn.2001-04.com.crossbeamsys:dut.target2, portal:,3261]

iscsiadm: Could not login to [iface: default, target:
iqn.2001-04.com.crossbeamsys:dut.target2, portal:,3261]:

iscsiadm: initiator reported error (4 - encountered connection

What version of open-iscsi are you using? There was a bug there the
default port would not get logged into in some test/rc releases.

Also check out /var/log/messages for messages from iscsid. Something
about a connection failing to connect. Send the log.

Thank you.  I am running 2.0-870 on RHEL6 beta (2.6.32-19.el6.x86_64).

Ah shoot, one of the beta snaps had the bug. Are you running the iscsi tools from RHEL 6 (the iscsi-initiator-utils rpm) beta or open-iscsi.org? If you are using the iscsi-initiator-utils then try

If that does not work could you try stopping iptables then logging in?
# /etc/init.d/iptables stop
# iscsiadm -m node -l

# /etc/init.d/iscsi restart
