Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
Previously, the "targetcli saveconfig" command did not save the max_data_area_mb control string. As a consequence, the property was lost when restarting the target service or rebooting the node. With this update, the property is saved and restored correctly.

Description Prasanna Kumar Kalever 2018-04-05 10:28:44 UTC
Description of problem:

saveconfig: dump control string max_data_area_mb

$ targetcli /backstores/user:glfs create blockX1 1073741824 test@,max_data_area_mb=32

$ targetcli / saveconfig

$ cat /etc/target/saveconfig.json
  "storage_objects": [
      "alua_tpgs": [],
      "attributes": {
      "config": "glfs/test@",
      "hw_max_sectors": 128,
      "name": "blockX1",
      "plugin": "user",
      "size": 1073741824,
      "wwn": "3aa072d6-a007-45a3-8eac-e85b53655515"
  "targets": []

Note max_data_area_mb is not dumped into the configfile and hence on restart oftarget service or node reboot this storageObject property is lost.

make sure to append max_data_area_mb to config param, like:
$ cat /etc/target/saveconfig.json
  "config": "glfs/test@,max_data_area_mb=32",

So that on restore and reboot we don't lose the property.
