Description Nitin Chandna 2005-04-28 09:03:08 UTC
Description of problem:
ACTIVE TIMEOUT is not mentioned in /etc/iscsi.conf file and man page 
for /etc/iscsi.conf. But is displayed with iscsi-ls -c.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a target (JBOD) on MDS 9216
2. Configure the DiscoveryAddress on the linux host and start the driver
3. Execute iscsi-ls -c and details of ACTIVE TIMEOUT is shown.
Actual results:
Executing iscsi-ls -c shows details of ACTIVE TIMEOUT. man pages 
and /etc/iscsi.conf does not mention anything about Active Timeout.

Expected results:
Either man pages and /etc/iscsi.conf should mention details about Active 
timeout or if it is not being used, it should be removed from the code and 
should not be displayed in iscsi-ls -c

Additional info:
The output of iscsi-ls -c looks like follows:
