Description Chakravarthy G.R.K. 2005-12-20 05:32:54 EST
Description of problem:



Two targets and 5 hosts are connected to a MDS.All targets and hosts are all 
configured in vsan1 and default-zone is used.VRRP1 are configured on all ports 
of MDS connecting with hosts.iSCSI server load balance is configured for VRRP1. 
Two hosts( and are configured as the iSCSI server load 
balancing initiators and the rest are dynamic iSCSI initiators.See attached 
start config for details.iSCSI server load balance init25 is configured to 
access only one of two targets.

After removing the iSCSI server load balance init25 config by " no islb 
initiator name $name",init25 than falls back as iSCSI dynamic initiator so it 
sets up session for each target in vsan1.But the iSCSI server load balance 
stays up which leads to two sessions from the same init to the same target.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reload the switch with attached start config.Make sure that all iSCSI server 
load balance and iSCSI sessions are up.
2. Remove the iSCSI server load balance init 25 by "no islb initiator name 
3.Check the iSCSI sessions for iSCSI init25.You can view the problem.
