Could you provide the iface files you are using, the /var/log/messsage
logs, the /var/log/brcm-iscsi.log, and a network trace when the
connection fails?  This will definitely help in debugging this problem.

Our PQA has tested this configuration, but you need to specify 1 iface
per path and specify the device using the MAC address of the HBA via the
'iface.hwaddress' field of the iface. 

Thanks again.
