Kernel panic when logging in to OpenSolaris iSCSI target using iscsi-initiator-utils
Last modified: 2012-06-27 05:22:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Kernel panic when logging in to an iSCSI target provided by OpenSolaris
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
On AMD x86_64 hardware with 2G of physical mem
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create target on Sun host:
sun# iscsitadm create target -b /dev/zvol/dsk/pool0/iscsi/target0 target0
sun# iscsitadm list target
iSCSI Name: iqn.1986-03.com.sun:02:607b69d6-fd3d-60b3-95d6-e629f3365280.target0
2. Discover LUN on Linux client:
rhel5# iscsiadm -m discovery -p 10.1.0.140:3260
3. Attempt to log in to target:
rhel5# iscsiadm -m node -T
Panic / reboot. This persists until I boot to single user, start iscsid, and '-o
delete' the node and discovery records.
Successful log in to target, or error message if a problem is found
I have only seen this behavior with the OpenSolaris iSCSI target. I used
OpenFiler and ietd both without issue previously.
FYI - I got a crash dump out of the box this afternoon, if anyone is interested.
I packaged the vmcore and a copy of the uncompressed debug kernel bzip'd up -
since I have 2G of mem, it's a bit on the large size, but compressed it's under
200M. If you're interested, let me know privately, and I'll put it up for download.
Do you have the panic? If you crash is occruing right when you try to login it
may be this bug
It very well may be. A panic string never got written to messages that I've
found, so I can't compare the exact panic. Here's what I get from the crash

Please let me know if you need more information, or if this is a dup.
I'd be very interested in the patch as well. I would like to move forward with
my work, even if it's not officially supported.
Thanks for your time.
Would it be helpful to get access to the machine(s) in question? I can arrange for an interactive session, just shoot me a message. I have no idea if this is already
known, although if it is, I'd really like to see the previously-mentioned patch.
Created attachment 156808 [details]
Sorry about the delay for the patch. I got some review comments on it and had
to respin it and so I am still testing this, but it is stable enough for you to
test and see if it fixes your problem, but not stable enough for production
Also one other question. Are you using data digests?
I am not explicitly using data digests (i.e. the defaults are in place in the
I don't know how to gather this information in OpenSolaris - it's not exposed on
the target-side (iscsitadm(8)) as an option to specify.
I'll plug the attachment in tomorrow and start playing. I understand it is not
production-ready code, but will help very much in my testing.
Hmm - no dice for me:

I do have some "extra" patches in, such as the NVidia layer and FUSE. Other than
that, I believe my kernel source is the stock kernel-2.6.18-8.1.4.el5 SRPM
install, linked to /usr/src/linux.
Sorry about that. You need to build with our experimentatl kernel. Here
is our kernel maintainer's snapshot of the current development RHEL5 kernel. Of
course this is going to be very unstable, but it gives you a look at what we are
You need his newest kernel snapshot here
The source is here
I've just upgraded to the 2.6.18-32.el5 kernel that includes the
"linux-2.6-scsi-update-iscsi_tcp-driver.patch" patch that appears to match this
issue. Since then, logging in to an OpenSolaris iSCSI target no longer panics
the system, but instead of being able to access the disk, I see this in
Jul 9 10:38:58 macosta-crash kernel: scsi1 : iSCSI Initiator over TCP/IP
Jul 9 10:38:59 macosta-crash iscsid: connection1:0 is operational now
Jul 9 10:39:00 macosta-crash kernel: iscsi: Got CHECK_CONDITION but invalid
data buffer size of 0
Is what Solaris presents forbidden by the spec, or should this work?

Returning a check condition, but not returning sense is not allowed in the SCSI
or iSCSI specs.
Is this the current open solaris target or a older version?

> Is this the current open solaris target or a older version?
It's *relatively* new:
rmike ~ # cat /etc/release
Solaris Nevada snv_64a X86
Copyright 2007 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Use is subject to license terms.
Assembled 18 May 2007
rmike ~ # uname -a
SunOS macosta-crash-iscsi 5.11 snv_64a i86pc i386 i86pc
Is there any new progress here? I'm willing to set up a custom kernel, and
provide remote access to get this working. Right now I have an idle OpenSolaris
box waiting for when RHEL5 can mount it (the MS iSCSI initiator doesn't appear
to have any issues in this space.)
Send me mail email@example.com with log in details. I think this problem of
getting a check condition with no sense is fixed on the opensolaris iscsi target
side in some version though.
This should be fixed in recent open solaris targets now. Closing. If it still occurs reopen.
