Issue

  • Temporary loss of connectivity between clusters can result in remote drives being marked as not responding. Event log would report similar messages: 

[NodeA: intr: ctl.session.stateChanged:notice]: iSCSI CAM target layer's session state is changed to terminated for the initiator iqn.1994-09.org.freebsd:185abf42-1aba-11eb-a6fc-d039ea45ec7d (address: 10.1.2.3). Reason: no ping reply after 5 seconds.
[NodeA: kernel: iscsi.session.stateChanged:notice]: iSCSI session state is changed to Reconnecting for the target iqn.2016-07.com.netapp:f4d3fb1c-1aba-11eb-a87d-d039ea45eac8 (type: dr_partner, address: 10.1.1.4:65200). Reason: no ping reply after 5 seconds.

  • sysconfig -a shows an output similar to the below:

    slot 0: Virtual iSCSI Host Adapter 0m 
        ...
        10.20: NETAPP   X371_SLNGE960ATE NA52 915.4GB 520B/sect (S/N) (Failed)

  • sysconfig -r output is similar:
