Hello all,

I've added some new fileservers to the cell recently that use iSCSI disk 
for vicepX partitions.  We've noticed the named disks listed in 
listaddr, and I have one report of a Mac client trying to hit it as a 

Here's the 'vos listaddr' output.  Redundant paths on each server is the 
reason for the iscsi0, and iscsi1 names.


My questions are:

Since they are listed in the VLDB, will clients try hitting them?

If I remove them with 'vos changeaddr -remove'  will they be relisted 
somehow?  Will they return?

Can we avoid listing them upon initial build of the fileserver?

Does anyone have any experience with this?
