I'm using a NW 6.5SP6 server to try to act as an initiator connecting to an
iSCSI target on an HP AIO 600 system. I have tried without and now with the
iscsi post-sp6 update which brings iscsi to ver. 1.06.02.

The NW server can see the iSCSI target. "ion" followed by "iscsinit connect
<ip addr>" always returns "connection established."

I can then run nssmu and see the device listed under the 'Devices' menu
option. But if I then just do a simple F2 -- scan for new devices -- the
device disappears, and back on the console screen I see the message "Device
"[V060-A5-D2:0] MSFT Virtual HD f/w:3.0" deactivated by driver due to device
failure. Doing "iscsinit disconnect <ip addr>" then "iscsinit connect <ip
addr>" brings it back.

So I try going to the 'Partitions' menu and hit 'Insert' to create a new
one, and get "No free space available for this operation."

Also, on the 'Device' screen, the device shows 'Capacity'=14.64GB, but both
'Partitioned Space' and 'Unpartitioned Space' of 0KB. I try 'F3' to
initialize it, and then after doing 'ioff' and 'ion', nssmu will show
14.64GB under 'Unpartitioned Space'.

But when I go into 'Partition' to create a new one, while it does allow me
to try to create a partition, I always get a "36 Partition create failed"
message when I try to create an iSCSI partition.

Here is the sys:iscsi.txt generated from "iscsi report", which shows some
errors (at end). I am unfamiliar with iSCSI and don't know if the error
msgs are important or what might fix them.

Thank you for your assistance,
Ted
