While we are on the topic of iSCSI target, I have been having problem
for quite some time to use two targets on one NetBDS-current machine
from a W2K3 initiator (latest version from Microsoft; tried also
StarWind from RocketDivision, but this simply froze with error
messages from the target, but that is another story).

I can connect to one of the targets - no problem; I can log on the
second one and it appears in the disk list, but any operation on it
fails with an error message in the event log, stating that it cannot
be completed, as the second one is a redundancy path for the first.

If I log out from the second target, I can connect and use it from
another server (in this case Windows 2008 RC0), so there is no problem
as far as I can see on the NetBSD system.

Any ideas? The targets are whole 80GB IDE disks - just /dev/wd?d is in
the spec. No authentication is used for now.
