Reaching all the way back to Mageia 3 and bug 10527 for a testing procedure on this one, modified a bit, since from appearances that was from the time when Mageia was shifting over to systemd, and some of Claire's commands were "redirected."

Got a list of packages from http://madb.mageia.org/tools/listRpmsForQaBug/bugnum/28637/application/0 Fortunately, there was one there. (That isn't always the case)

Installed the current packages in a virtualbox guest, started the service, tried a few options for the iscsiadm command. No crashes, but everything but the -h option referred me to the -h option. Clearly, I am out of my depth to try to reproduce the crash.

Stopped the service, rebooted just on general principles, then repeated my version of Claire's test:

# systemctl status open-iscsi
● open-iscsi.service - Open iSCSI Daemon
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/open-iscsi.service; disabled; vendor preset: >

Since that was good enough for Claire, it's good enough for me. Giving this a 64-bit OK, and Validating. Still needs an advisory.

Blast! Did not mention that I used the list of packages from http://madb.mageia.org/tools/listRpmsForQaBug/bugnum/28637/application/0 in qarepo to get the update, and there were no installation issues.
