iSCSI and iSCSIadm

On a development Oracle environment we were running Oracle (RHEL 6.x) on a Dell PowerEdge R510 server and connected via iSCSI to a SuperMicro NAS (Nas4Free 9.1.x) on a bonded 1Gb ethernet switch (LACP on Cisco). We then changed out the one SuperMicro NAS for an updated and larger NAS and reconnected to the Oracle environment. Unfortunately we also saw attempts to contact the old/retired NAS on iSCSI.
