I add an existing iscsi-disk to VirtualBox withj the command

imapcl1:~ # VBoxManage addiscsidisk -server -target ... Created successfull with id ...

but the command "list hdds" show:

imapcl1:~ # VBoxManage list hdds
UUID: 19c22d35-bed0-4001-a6cd-534c8ea7f703
Format: iSCSI
Accessible: no

that the disk is not accessible. The command showhdinfo show:

imapcl1:~ # VBoxManage showhdinfo 19c22d35-bed0-4001-a6cd-534c8ea7f703

UUID: 19c22d35-bed0-4001-a6cd-534c8ea7f703
Accessible: no
Access Error: Could not open the hard disk ''.
VD: error opening image file '' (VERR_IO_GEN_FAILURE)
Logical size: 0 MBytes
Current size on disk: 0 MBytes
Type: normal
Storage format: iSCSI

that the disk was created with the Type normal and not with write-through. Maybe this is the problem, but i cannot find how to make something different or to use a flag like "-type ..."

Is this still a problem with a recent VirtualBox release? Which iSCSI target do you use?
