I've configure iSCSI but CentOS 6.3 is unable to recognize if on startup.

Here is fstab config:

/dev/sdb1               /home                   ext4    _netdev         0 0

Here is iscsi.conf settings:

node.startup = automatic
node.session.auth.username = 
node.session.auth.password =
discovery.sendtargets.auth.username =
discovery.sendtargets.auth.password =

Here is initiatorname.iscsi: iqn.2004-04.com.iscsi:iscsi:iscsi.start.8cff69

Here is chkconfig:

iscsid          0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

Any help please.

dmesg is not showing errors. My question is that centos 6.3 is unable to initialize and boot with iscsi. I've to process it manually. Yes both iscsi and iscsid are enabled on start up. How can i check / configure initramfs .. any manual?

have you check dmesg and /var/log/messages for errors? – BitsOfNix Dec 26 '12 at 22:01
What is your question? What is the problem you are having? – Michael Hampton Dec 27 '12 at 0:53
what about iscsi service? is it enabled in startup ? – Rahul Patil Dec 27 '12 at 7:15
Is your initramfs configured to include iSCSI support? On Ubuntu I know I need to configure this for any network device on boot. – gertvdijk Dec 27 '12 at 10:56
