set storageArray unnamedDiscoverySession=(TRUE | FALSE)


Parameter Description


This parameter turns on or turns off unnamed discovery sessions. Set the parameter to TRUE to turn on unnamed discovery sessions. Set the parameter to FALSE to turn off unnamed discovery sessions.


Discovery is the process where initiators determine the targets that are available. Discovery occurs at power-on/initialization and also if the bus topology changes, for example, if an extra device is added.

An unnamed discovery session is a discovery session that is established without specifying a target ID in the login request. For unnamed discovery sessions, neither the target ID nor the target portal group ID are available to the targets.
