SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3


iSCSI installation targets provided via ipv6 fail to connect. The boot process will abort and show messages similar to:
Starting iSCSI daemon
Logging in to [iface: xxxx......
iscsiadm: Could not login to [iface: xxx.....
iscsiadm: initiator reported error (8 - connection timed out)
iscsiadm: no records found



A Driver Update Disk (DUD) fixing this issue is available. Please find it and instructions on how to use it at:


The initrd disk image isn't built properly in order to use iSCSI in an IPV6 environment. An update for the package mkinitrd is provided within that DUD.
