Re: [Ips] NOP during Discovery
It is not allowed in discovery - There was a long discussion with one party insisting on having NOP as a way of keeping the discovery session alive.
Discovery being only a lightweight location mechanism it was decided that it is not worth having it as a permanent alternative for a management interface.
I have found that at least one initiator is doing a NOP-out during discovery phase. But the spec says that isn't allowed. Am I misunderstanding something?
3.3 iSCSI Session Types
iSCSI defines two types of sessions:
a) Normal operational session - an unrestricted session.
b) Discovery-session - a session only opened for target
discovery. The target MUST ONLY accept text requests with the
SendTargets key and a logout request with reason "close the
session". All other requests MUST be rejected.
The session type is defined during login with key=value parameter in
the login command.
