Cannot get iscsi (SAN) to work

Greetings, I hope this question is in the right forum...

I have RHEL 5 and I'm trying to get iscsi to work to connect to a SAN.

I've installed iscsi packages using yum, established my targets and everything seems fine.

When I restart the service (service iscsi restart) I get:

[root@orcltestdb ~]# service iscsi restart
Logout session [3][]
Stopping iSCSI daemon: /etc/init.d/iscsi: line 33: 22474 Killed /etc/init.d/iscsid stop
iscsid dead but pid file exists [ OK ]
Turning off network shutdown. Starting iSCSI daemon: [ OK ]
[ OK ]
Setting up iSCSI targets: Login session []
Login session []
iscsiadm: Could not login session (err 8).

iscsiadm: initiator reported error (8 - connection timed out)
[ OK ]

I have no idea what's going on.

I also can't locate iscsi-ls.

Any indeas?

What kind of SAN are you using?

Some SANs do not require disk drivers for you to connect to LUNs. What they require is a driver for the HBA, and a client for the SAN software.

or are you trying to set up local i-scsi drives for your server? perhas a NAS?

Well I ones have a problem very similar to yours, so I download a gait drive initiator to help me I donít remember exactly which, but the StarWind San was the one that allowed me to fix the problem on the target side.
