Description Bruno Goncalves 2012-09-25 05:34:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Reading the man page for iscsiadm, the -l option says:

       -l, --login
              For node and fw mode, login to a specified record. For discovery
              mode, login to all discovered targets.

My question is should be possible to run: "iscsiadm -m discovery -l" and it will login to all targets already discovered and stored in the DB? (Similar as running iscsiadm -m node -l)
Or it will just perform the login as soon the target is discovered, with:
iscsiadm -m discovery -p <portal> -l

Comment 2 Bruno Goncalves 2012-10-11 07:38:13 EDT
Please add to help and man page "-o operation" to iscsiadm -m discovery mode.

This command is supported, but it is not listed on help nor on man page.

iscsiadm -m discovery [ -hV ] [ -d debug_level ] [-P printlevel] [ -t type -p ip:port -I ifaceN ... [ -l ] ] | [ [ -p ip:port ] [ -l | -D ] ]
