MC/S is an acronymn for Multiple iSCSI Connections per iSCSI Session. MC/S means creating multiple communication paths across TCP/SCTP or iSER & RCaP connections + RFC-3720 defined session-wide CmdSN ordering to ensure in-order delivery of tasks from SCSI Initiator Port -> SCSI Target Port as defined by the SCSI Architecture Model in which iSCSI provides the SCSI transport.

Open-iscsi Interopt - STATUS - NOT SUPPORTED

The following requirements as defined by RFC-3720 for non ERL dependant MC/S support are not limited to the following:
