iscsi_discovery - discover iSCSI targets

iscsi_discovery(8) System Manager's Manual iscsi_discovery(8)

NAME

iscsi_discovery - discover iSCSI targets

SYNOPSIS

iscsi_discovery <IP> [-p <port>] [-d] [ -t <tcp|iser> [-f] ] [-m] [-l]
 

DESCRIPTION

Perform send-targets discovery to the specified IP. If a discovery record is generated, try to login to the portal using the preferred transport (-t flag specifies the requested transport type, TCP is the default). If login using a certain transport succeeds, mark the portal for automatic login (unless -m flag is used), and disconnect (unless -l flag is used).
 
For iSCSI discovery to work, open-iscsi services must be running. i.e. iscsid should be up, and the iSCSI modules loaded. This is best accomplished by the init.d startup script.
 
[-p=]port-number
set the port number (default is 3260).
[-d]
print debugging information.
[-t=]transport-type
set transport (default is tcp).
[-f]
force specific transport - disable the fallback to tcp (default is fallback enabled). force the transport specified by the argument of the -t flag.
 
[-m]
manual startup - will set manual startup (default is automatic startup).
[-l]
login - login to the new discovered nodes (default is false).
