I have one san with 4 software iSCSI targets managed by Star Wind iSCSI from Rocketdivision.
Three of them are targets for GSX Servers, which are suspended every night when they are backed up.
Now I set up a new ESX Server which uses the 4th target - ok until here.

In the night when the 3 targets get available because of the backup ESX Server "catches" them all and when the GSX VM's come back their targets disappered.

How can I prevent VMware's ESX Server from taking over temporarily available iSCSI targets?
