    (Vista HP SP1, iSCSI Target on Thecus N5200Pro)

    Having found out how to log-off an iSCSI session, I find now that most of
    the time I can't...

    I receive the message "the session cannot be logged out since a device on
    that session is currently being used"; as per Microsoft iSCSI Software
    Initiator 2.x Users Guide I check for open handles and find the following
    open files and the processes that have the handles.

    I:\System Volume Information\tracking.log svchost.exe
    I:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLogContainer00000000000000000002 System
    I:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLogContainer00000000000000000001 System
    I:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLog.blf System Process
    I:\$Extend\$ObjId svchost.exe

    which are all NTFS structures, so the disk is just doing nothing except
    being there...

    I can see the IET Virtual Disk Device Policies are set to "Optimise for
    Performance", and I'd like to try to set them to "Optimise for Safe Removal"
    but they are both greyed out...

    Would appreciate knowing how to force a log-off and chang the policy.

    I had to make sure that my computer management mmc was closed then it was no
    problem to log out. Hope this helps...

    You had a similar issue? Thanks for the thought!

    Unfortunately I didn't have a Computer Management console open... or any
    other MMC snap-ins... AFAIK

    One other thing though... log-off problems only *seem* to occur if the iSCSI
    target has been set as a Persistent Target and the System logs on

    (I'm trying to find out whether that's because of the account it uses to log
    on under, but manual log-on and log-off have not given problems, but there's
    not much point in having a Persistent target if you can't use it without the
    system crashing and you can't log off either...)
