SLES 10 iSCSI timeout after load balancing request when using the native open-iscsi
This article provides information on what to do if a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 using native open-iSCSI time outs after an iSCSI load balancing request.
Modify the /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf
To improve this situation, there are two modifications that can be made to the /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf.
If your discovery is password protected, provide the authentication information to iscsid by adding your password information for the discovery to the end of /etc/iscsid.conf file
discovery.sendtargets.auth.authmethod = CHAP
discovery.sendtargets.auth.username = <username>
discovery.sendtargets.auth.password = <password>
Then add the following 2 new entries to give a little wiggle room with connection timeouts on load balancing activities.
node.conn.timeo.noop_out_interval = 10
node.conn.timeo.noop_out_timeout = 30
