SYNOPSIS

iscsid [-dv] [-n device] [-s socket]

DESCRIPTION

iscsid is usually started at boot time.
A running iscsid can be controlled with the iscsictl(8) utility.
The options are as follows:
 
 
-d
Do not daemonize. If this option is specified, iscsid will run in the foreground and log to stderr.
 
 
-n device
Use an alternate /dev entry for communicating with the kernel.
 
 
-s socket
Use an alternate location for the default control socket.
 
 
-v
Produce more verbose output.
