Status DetailDescription
Admin Status

Specifies whether the target volume has been configured as either online or offline by the administrator.

If a volume is offline, the ISCSI initiators cannot access it.

When lost blocks that belong to a particular volume are found, the Operational Status of the volume is set to not-available-due-to-lost-cached-blocks.

When the volume is in this state and if the user chooses to ignore the lost blocks by setting the volume status to Online, the subsystem automatically sets the Admin Status to online-lost-cached-blocks.

The online-lost-cached-blocks state of Admin Status indicates that the user acknowledged and acted upon the lost-blocks state of the volume.

On re-start, and if the subsystem finds a volume with $AdminStatus as online-lost-cached-blocks, it will configure the Operational Status to Online instead of not-available-due-to-lost-cached-blocks as the user has already acknowledged the lost-blocks state and has chosne to ignore them.
