Using a diagnostic monitor for troubleshooting

If the client is not able to boot from the target server and the problem is not discernable from the immediately available information, you may need to use a network monitor that is capable of parsing the iSCSI protocol to troubleshoot the information.

If the iSCSI target is software running on a server, you may be able to run a software network monitor such as Ethereal directly on the target system. Otherwise, you may need to configure a network switch with port mirroring and direct the mirrored packets to a port where either a hardware or software network monitor can be attached.
