Ticket #8899 (new defect)
Repeated login to iscsi disk
|Reported by:||rdo911||Owned by:|
Hardware: Silicon Mechanics Rackform iServ R109 with 16GB of RAM, 40GB SATA SSD Silicon Mechanics Storform iS703
Software: Physical machine is running Linux version 2.6.32-5-686-bigmem (Debian 2.6.32-31) Virtualbox 4.0.6 Open-E DSS Version 6.0up55.8102.5087 64bit
Installed the open-iscsi and iscsitarget pacakges. Able to mount iscsi targets as /dev/sdbX on the physical machine.
Setup a VM running Windows XP, installed the iscsi drivers, and mounted an iscsi target as the D: drive.
Attached an iscsi target to VM Debian-test using this command:
VBoxManage storageattach Debian-Test --storagectl "SATA Controller" --port 0 --device 0 --type hdd --medium iscsi --server 192.168.11.1 --target debian-test
In the VM settings I can see the disk details including the size of 100GB. Seems to be talking fine to the SAN.
VM has an ISO of Debian in the CD slot, and the iscsi target is an empty disk that I will be installing Debian onto, but I don't get that far.
When I start the VM, it just hangs waiting for the iscsi target. Checking the VBox.log this line is repeated: iSCSI: login to target debian-test successful
I also ran wireshark and captured packets between the SAN and the VM. A constant reset of the iscsi connection appears to be happening.
Have attached the VBox.log and wireshark packet capture.
