Rule Knowledgebase

Summary

This rule monitors failed logins to an iSCSI Target server by an iSCSI initiator, which is caused by an invalid iSCSI target being requested.

An alert will be generated for every unique combination of iSCSI initiator and iSCSI target that causes this issue. The alert description will contain details of the iSCSI initiator and target.

Causes

An iSCSI initiator tried to access an iSCSI target on this server that is not valid.

Resolutions

Verify that the iSCSI initiator configuration is correct and the iSCSI target server is the correct server that should be accessed. If this is correct, follow these steps:

  • On the iSCSI target server, open the Microsoft iSCSI Software Target MMC snap-in

  • In the left pane, expand the iSCSI Targets folder

  • Review the available iSCSI targets and create or edit the iSCSI targets as needed

You must manually resolve the alert once the problem has been resolved.
