Restarting the initiator or the target? If you restart the target while
there are initiators connected, you need the offline patch as well (This
patch was posted to the list, but not merged). This will allow you to put
the target offline while you configure it, and put it online again when it
has been configured.

There should be 2 processes, probably 1 died? I've had this happen during
a initiator reconnect while the target was being configured. Putting the
target offline during configuration has solved all these issues for me.
