What does the SolidFire AIQ event iSCSI session reinstatement count increase mean?

Last Updated:

Applies to

NetApp Element Software


The iSCSI session reinstatement count increases potentially when there are misconfigured clients, or where 2 clients are configured with same initiator IQN and attempt to login to the same volumes.
Another reason could be false positive events due to race conditions when the client detects a failure and attempts re-login before the target detects the original session has failed. This reason is why the limit before alerting is 200 every 60 minutes.
