In simple cases, yes (i.e. where you have just some targets with a name, 
block devices attached to it etc.).

It wouldn't however dump some more detailed settings, passwords and such 
- the dump relies on tgtadm output where all targets are show; it is 
later parsed, and a config file is created.

In other words, it will create a config file, but you might need to 
review it / add some settings.
