Doc Text:
Discovery of iSCSI storage targets using the Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS) protocol did not properly bind the discovered target portal to offloading iSCSI Host Bus Adapter (HBA) interfaces. As a consequence, iSNS discovery failed when performed by offloading iSCSI HBAs. With this update, iSNS binds the target portal as expected, and thus ensures that offloading iSCSI HBAs enables iSNS discovery.
