I am trying to fix a problem where a root iscsi remote disc boot is being disrupted by smartd.

The problem appears to be that smartd sends down multiple SCSI Inquiry requests with the wrong StatSN. This trigger the iSCSI target to reject the PDU, which trigger session recovery, i.e. it disconnects.

The default smartd.conf seems to scarf all discs. Is there or could there be an option to skip iSCSI (or otherwise remote) discs?

[I am not on the email list, so please reply to me directly.]

Thank you.
