I would like to understand if, and how to, limit the maximum number of simultaneous connections to a specific LUN under CentOS Linux, both with the old iSCSI stack (tgtadmin and friends) and the new one (targetcli and the likes).

I am exporting a LUN with a general purpose filesystem (non cluster aware) and I would be 100% sure that only a single machine at a time can mount it.

At the moment, I protected the iSCSI LUN with both an IP-based access list and a username/password combo, but hard limiting the maximum number of connections opened against it to 1 (one) would be a nice thing...

As I have mixed RHEL 6 and 7 environment, I am interested in how to do that on both the old and new iSCSI stack.

Thank you all.
