 +    * This method disables iscsid. I have detected (probably the same) problem with it under Maverick (2.6.35 kernel), but not under Lucid (2.6.32 kernel). iscsid fails to reestablish the iscsi session and fails with response status code 0201. The problem is: I need iscsid to attach more iscsi shares... any idea how to solve that issue?
