    Good point, I’ve seen this too. With a NetApp, you can disable the iSCSI targets on the nics / ifgrps that aren’t on an iSCSI network so the ESX host will never learn about those targets and therefore will never attempt attach to them. Overall worth checking from all angles though!

      I noticed today that removing the dynamic discovery IPs from the list also removes the static discovery IPs after a reboot. If I remove the discovery IP and switch to the static discovery tab, the entries show a “orphaned parent”. After a reboot the entries are gone. Can you confirm this?
