Note This issue may occur in all versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2.
CAUSE
This issue occurs for one or more of the following reasons.

Cause 1

An iSCSI target device that is listed on the Favorite Targetstab of the iSCSI Initiator is no longer accessible. This may occur if the iSCSI target device name is changed, if the IP address is changed, or if the iSCSI target device is removed from the network.

Cause 2

The iSCSI target device has reached its limit for the number of incoming connections.

Cause 3

A transient network issue temporarily prevented connectivity to the iSCSI target device.

Cause 4

The network stack is not fully prepared when the initiator was trying to connect to persistent targets. The initiator will try to connect. When the network stack is fully prepared, the connection should be successfully established.
RESOLUTION
If you receive this error when the iSCSI target device that is listed on the Favorite Targetstab no longer exists, you can resolve this issue by removing the iSCSI target device from the list of favorite targets.

If you receive this error, and you cannot access an iSCSI target device that is still configured on the network, make sure that the client computer has network connectivity to the iSCSI target. Additionally, make sure that name resolution is working correctly.

If you have successfully connected to your iSCSI target device despite this error, it indicates that the connectivity issue was temporary. Therefore, you can safely ignore this Error event.
