Yes, I can get open-iscsi working with iscsi. The problem is both ofed
and open-iscsi install iscsiadm, so there's a conflict here and I
haven't figured out what's the relationship in between. Besides, my
centos box is working on iser using ofed.
Does anyone know the history between ofed and open-iscsi?

If you are just using CentOS as the initiator and not the target then
always use iscsi-initiator-utils (a.k.a. open-iscsi) instead of ofed.
supported in the official CentOS repos. You just need to
yum install iscsi-initiator-utils
iscsiadm -m discovery -p <targetip> -t sendtargets
iscsiadm -m node -p <targetip> -T <target iqn reported by prev cmd> -l
Then the block device nodes appear - as if by magic - under
I'm not familiar with ofed, but it sounds like it requires you to
and rebuild your kernel.
