Note that that really SHOULD be 1993-04, not 1993-03. From RFC 3720 (the=20
iSCSI spec):

      -  A date code, in yyyy-mm format.  This date MUST be a date
         during which the naming authority owned the domain name used in
         this format, and SHOULD be the first month in which the domain
         name was owned by this naming authority at 00:01 GMT of the
         first day of the month.  This date code uses the Gregorian
         calendar.  All four digits in the year must be present.  Both
         digits of the month must be present, with January =3D=3D "01" and
         December =3D=3D "12".  The dash must be included.

April 1993 was the first month we owned at the start of the
month, thus -04.

Admittedly other initiators, such as Microsoft, ignore this point.  Also,
no one owned before we did, so there is less room for confusion
than there could be with other names. But it would be nice to actually
follow the spec. :-)

Take care,
