I wanted a way to change the iscsi install options during the install
without rebooting. For example, if the user entered target IP address,
port, initiator name, on the iscsi screen, hits "next", then later wants
to go back and change any or all iscsi values.

And, in theory the user can modify /etc/iscsid.conf during the install.

So, I logout and kill -9 all iscsid instances to clear everything.

Yes, that is fine. I don't know the time frames for the change(s) ...

Should I leave it as a logout and kill -9 for now?
