Description Smitha Narayanaswamy 2005-07-13 11:12:15 EDT
Description of problem:
When the fc cable is pulled out, the initiator sees a target error.
When PortalFailover is enabled, login is retried on the next path (If 
there is a single path, the next path resolves to same path). But if 
it is specifically disabled, it is not retried.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.6

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In /etc/iscsi.conf disable portal failover with PortalFailover=no
2. Connect a host to a target
3. Take the FC target port offline for a while

Actual results:
Initiator does not retry login

Expected results:
Initiator should retry login
