a) Your NAS device hosting an iscsi target goes dead
b) When your iscsi target is ready again, your VMH's does not automatically detect it?
If thats your constallation - then i will ask you, if your vmh will re-find the datastore if you rescan the HBA storage adapter for the specific target?
Have you CHAP enabled?
I do not have CHAP enabled. I do multiple rescans of HBA and VMFS volumes. I am currently working with support on the issue. Right now after downgrading the iSCSI to IET (from LIO per patch from support), it seemed to work through reboots, but then started failing. I really do not understand as I have a Gentoo Linux box running kernel 2.6.36 with iscsitarget 126.96.36.199 that works flawlessly! I have had to move all of my production VMs over to it vs the DS1010+ (and the 1010+ is on the VMWare HCL!).
