2.5. Stopping iSCSI Targets¶
To stop an iSCSI target to which no initiators are connected, use the
vstorage-iscsi stop command. For example, for the target
# vstorage-iscsi stop -t iqn.2014-04.com.vstorage:test1
If one or more iSCSI initiators are still connected to the target, you will be informed as follows:
# vstorage-iscsi stop -t iqn.2014-04.com.vstorage:test1 initiators still connected Initiator: iqn.1994-05.com.redhat:c678b9f6f0 (192.168.30.100) Unable stop target iqn.2014-04.com.vstorage:test1
In this case, disconnect the iSCSI initiator according to the product manual and run the
vstorage-iscsi stop command again.
To forcibly stop a target to which one or more initiators are still connected, add the
-f option to the command above. For example:
# vstorage-iscsi stop -t iqn.2014-04.com.vstorage:test1 -f
Breaking the iSCSI connection in such a way may result in I/O errors on the iSCSI initiator’s side.
