Description Nitin Chandna 2005-06-09 05:14:30 UTC
Description of problem:
SLPMulticast with comma separated values doesn't work.
With value "all", it worked fine and got me two targets on two different portals.
With value for Unicast specified twice - one for each portal, it worked fine as
But when I specified SLPMulticast=<IPAddress_1>, <IPAddress_2>, it didnt return
me any targets.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Specify the SLPMulticast=, in the /etc/iscsi.conf file
2. Start the initiator.
3. No targets are discovered, though I have configured one target each with no
accesslist on each of the IP addresses mentioned above.
Actual results:
No targets for discovered for SLPMulticast=,

Expected results:
Two Targets on each of the IPaddresses should have got discovered.

RHEL does not support SLP, so I am closing this bug for now.
