The IESG has received a request from the STORage Maintenance WG (storm)
to consider the following document:
- 'iSCSI Protocol (Consolidated)'
  <draft-ietf-storm-iscsi-cons-06.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2012-08-13. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Please note the concurrent Last Call for draft-ietf-storm-iscsi-sam, as both
drafts should be reviewed together.


  This document describes a transport protocol for SCSI that works
  on top of TCP. The iSCSI protocol aims to be fully compliant with
  the standardized SCSI Architecture Model (SAM-2). RFC 3720
  defined the original iSCSI protocol. RFC 3721 discusses iSCSI
  Naming examples and discovery techniques. Subsequently, RFC 3980
  added an additional naming format to iSCSI protocol. RFC 4850
  followed up by adding a new public extension key to iSCSI. RFC
  5048 offered a number of clarifications and a few improvements and
  corrections to the original iSCSI protocol.

  This document obsoletes RFCs 3720, 3980, 4850 and 5048 by
  consolidating them into a single document and making additional
  updates to the consolidated specification. This document also
  updates RFC 3721 and RFC 3723. The text in this document thus
  supersedes the text in all the noted RFCs wherever there is a
  difference in semantics.
