I have not evaluated dmotion to perform this specific upgrade, but I
recently used dmotion to move from the RHEL5-based iSCSI target to the
RHEL6-based target.  This is a small non-production environment (two
hosts + storage host in a lab) so I was hoping to see if someone had
done what I suggested.  If not, I'll consider dmotion like you suggested
since I know it should work and will allow me to migrate to the latest
