    NOTE: Only IQNs can be used as an entry to establish access control. A Fibre Channel feature, Default Zoning, disallows access to all hosts when cfgDisable and cfgClear are run. iSCSI ports function the same way for any action based on default zoning. In other words, if default zoning is on and cfgDisable and cfgClear are run, the iSCSI hosts are also denied access to the iSCSI virtual targets irrespective of a discovery domain set defined.
