Description Andy Grover 2014-07-02 18:44:23 UTC
The service to that must be enabled to restore the target configuration on restart is called target.service. It doesn't actually live in the targetcli pkg, it lives in the python-rtslib pkg. There's no good way for an admin to find this out, but they will in all likelihood want to enable it.

We should mention this in the "quickstart" section of the targetcli manpage, so users do not experience extreme frustration.

Comment 4 Martin Hoyer 2017-05-29 14:10:32 UTC
Tested with targetcli-2.1.fb46-1.el7. No regression found.
Manpage states that:

"Although  by default targetcli saves the running configuration upon exit, a distribution-specific service must be enabled to restore the saved configuration on reboot. See distribution documentation for specifics, but for example:

$ sudo systemctl enable target.service"
