	Title		: iSCSI Implementation Guidelines for Fault Tolerance 
                          and Load Balancing using Temporary Redirection

An approach for achieving fault tolerance and load balancing in iSCSI
using the iSNS discovery mechanism or iSCSI discovery session and the
temporary redirection mechanism is outlined here.  This approach
requires no change to iSCSI or other protocols that initiators and
targets implement.  But the manner in which initiators perform target
discovery, support the temporary redirection mechanism, and recover
from failed iSCSI sessions affects their ability to support this
approach.  This paper provides implementation guidelines for iSCSI
initiators to follow to support this form of fault tolerance and load
balancing.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
