I was able to connect to my iSCSI target using Solaris 8 which had Cisco iSCSI initiator compatiblity. But in Solaris 10 We have to use the bultin initiator and thats where we have issue


While creating target change untick "Target Default Name" and set :<dss name>.<target alias>

Then we were able to connec to Solaris 10 by following the procedure in the following link:

In short we used the following commands:
# iscsiadm add discovery-address
# iscsiadm modify discovery --sendtargets enable
# devfsadm -i iscsi

then after putting "format" command we were able to format iSCSI target
