Article Summary: This article provides information about incorrect Microsoft iSCSI Initiator source IP addresses
After a host system reboot, when looking up the details of an iSCSI Initiator persistent target or a favorite
target, the source IP address may show another network interface (NIC)'s IP address on the host system.
Per Microsoft, if connection to an iSCSI target is confirmed successful using the correct source IP address,
it is safe to ignore the error condition. To confirm that all persistent target IP addresses are correct, open
a command prompt and run the 'iscsicli SessionList' command to review the settings from there.
An example of this could be seen when setting up targets with Multipath I/O (MPIO) and assigning 2 NICs
as iSCSI source IP addresses, such as 192.168.0.10 & 192.168.0.11. Prior to reboot, all the details for source
IP addresses are displayed as correct. After reboot, however, the target details show a source IP address from
one of the other NICs in the server, such as a Production/Management LAN NIC IP address of 10.0.0.1.
This particular issue has been reported from iSCSI Initiator versions 2.05 through v.2.08, at the earliest, and
is known to exist through to Windows Server 2008 R2.
