Error after attaching ISCSI target
May be anyone can help with my issue.
After creation iSCSI target on DSS v6 and connecting it to Windows Server 2003 R2 as a dynamic disk everything is fine for some time.
But then i see errors in windows log files "The initiator could not send an iSCSI PDU. Error status is given in the dump data" (eventid 7) and "Connection to the target was lost. The initiator will attempt to retry the connection" (eventid 20). Some time later I discover iSCSI target is been detached.
Thanks in advance
You might want to check the network connection to see if there are any lost packets either from the RX or TX side of the Windows or DSS side. From the DSS side you can download the log file from the GUI in Status > Hardware then click the Download button and look at the tests.log file in the section of ifconfig -a and see if there are any dropped packets. Or you can submit a support ticket and we will check for you.
All the best,
This is a section from tests.log file
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:90:1D:44:20
inet addr:192.168.3.252 Bcast:192.168.3.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

RX packets:380490746 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:981302199 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
Please tell me does Open-E DSS v6 have any built-in firewall?
During the process of attaching Wireshark gives information about those strange packets
"Destination unreachable (Host administratively prohibited)" type 3 code 10
We do not use any firewall functions in our products. Make sure you are not suing CHAP or the Allow and Deny on the iSCSI Target. If it was working before and then recently for some time check if you can ping the DSS from the Windows system. You might want to submit a support ticket if all else fails so we can investigate the problem.
All the best,
Thank you, Todd.
