Issue

  • I/O error occurs on an initiator host after a nodeOffline alert occurs due to the node failure.
  • iscsid.conf on the host is as follows.

node.session.timeo.replacement_timeout = 120
node.conn[0].timeo.login_timeout = 15
node.conn[0].timeo.logout_timeout = 15
node.conn[0].timeo.noop_out_timeout = 5
node.session.err_timeo.abort_timeout = 15
node.session.err_timeo.lu_reset_timeout = 20

  • Logs on the host report I/O error before 120 seconds pass after iSCSI ping timeout occurs.

Example:

May 14 22:10:26 initiatorhost kernel: connection9:0: ping timeout of 5 secs expired, recv timeout 5, last rx 15465027362, last ping 15465032364, now 15465037377
