That's actually more of a generic SCSI question than an iSCSI question, but anyhow ...

... if READ CAPACITY (10) doesn't work, try READ CAPACITY (16) [opcode 0x9E, service action 0x10].

OTOH, if READ CAPACITY (10) results in a Check Condition for invalid opcode, the target that issued that CC does not comply with the SCSI standards, as support for READ CAPACITY (10) is mandatory for block devices in both the SBC-2 standard and all drafts of the in-progress SBC-3 standard.

Thanks,
