  1. AS says:

    The second discovery method is Static Discovery, FindTargets (answer “B”).
    So, the answer for this question is “B and D”.

    Explanation:
    Static/Dynamic Discovery: iSCSI uses a method of discovery where the iSCSI initiator can query an iSCSI target for the available LUNs. Static discovery involves a manual configuration, whereas dynamic discovery issues an iSCSI-standard SendTargets command to one of the iSCSI targets on the array. This target then reports all the available targets and LUNs to that particular initiator.

  2. Ryan M says:

    Each provided answer contains within it two methods. So the answer D is correct. Besides, ‘findtargets’ doesn’t exist.

  3. Ram Ganesh says:

    With Dynamic Discovery, each time the initiator contacts a specified iSCSI storage system, it sends the SendTargets request to the system. The iSCSI system responds by supplying a list of available targets to the initiator.
