open-iscsi handles the HeaderDigest/DataDigest issue. You can use the 
iscsi_discovery script (which is in open-iscsi tree). It is easier to 
use than running iscsiadm. It does the following:

    * Discovers the node
    * Tries to connect & login over iSER (without
      HeaderDigest/DataDigest). If it's successful, it sets the node's
      transport to iSER. Else, it sets it to TCP.
    * Logs out (if necessary)
