can you explain exactly what the setup is? Where is the USB drive connected to? Another server?

Have you rebooted the server that has the USB drive attached since you reconnected it?

Commented:
The USB drive is on the same server.

The server was rebooted. Following the reboot, the iscsi virtual disk does not show up anymore. Import of the existing virtual disk fails with the following error:

Unable to import the virtual disk. A virtual disk with that file path already exists.
