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

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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
