Using ISCSIADM on XenServer 6.0.2: Message "ISCSIADM is not running " could not start Automatically

Installed brand new XenServer and try to run ISCSIADM command it will throw message  "iscsid is not running. Could not start it up automatically using the startup command in /etc/iscsi/iscsid.start


To  fix it just run new SR wizard for ISCSI over LVM and


then try to run the discovery again it will list all the targets . This test is conducted on EMC VNX 5500. This process basically make  open-iscsi service is called by and configured by XAPI. When using the New Storage wizard, it will create files /etc/iscsi such as initiator name, send_targets directory. image

In order to create new SR on VNX 5500 for XenServer 6.0.2 , you need to ensure that all the targets are logged in. The process is A) Run SR wizard but do not create SR 2) Logged all the targets 3) Create the SR again using SR wizard   . This has been explained in following blogs of mine

Thanks to my college and open-iscsi.
