That was my thought as well. I have my pop toasters all mounting a NFS mail

Not sure if that is important as iSCSI is all new to me, still reading up on
it. Does FreeBSD do anything special to a NFS mount when it returns?

'k, maybe I'm misunderstanding things, but iSCSI != NFS ... iSCSI is just
removing your SCSI drives from your local server and putting them in a
different location (over an ethernet connection) ... with NFS, you have one
server to which multiple clients can connect ... with iSCSI, you have a
one-to-one mapping of a file system on the 'target' to the server in question
... so, again, it was my understanding that stuff like an fsck is the
responsibility of the server, not the target, same as if the SCSI drives were
local to the server ...
