Description (partial)


iSCSI Microsoft netboot initiator could not see their LUNs after booting up


When Microsoft netboot iscsi driver boots up, it creates a session to the target to read the boot disk. Once that is done, the regular iSCSI driver creates another session to the same target.  However, the two drivers use the same iSCSI initiator name so it appears to the switch as duplicate sessions. SANOS version 3.3(1c) does not handle this properly causing the problem.
