Disabling iSCSI Targets Can Cause The Host Initiator an Abnormally Long Time To List iSCSI Devices

(Doc ID 1642603.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2018

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 10/09 U8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Running an explorer on a host with iSCSI LUNs takes a long time or will hang
or even running ls -l /dev/rdsk/* takes a very long time or hang.


There are a couple of ways the problem can be seen:

A) Disable an existing iSCSI target used as part of a zpool on the host and rebooting the host.


To add a view, the following command is used in COMSTAR

The device links of the previous devices under the /dev/*dsk/* will cause the commands to hang.
