With Dynamic Discovery, each time the initiator contacts a particular iSCSI storage system, the initiator sends the SendTargets request to the iSCSI system. The iSCSI system responds by supplying a list of available targets to the initiator.

When you set up Dynamic Discovery, you can only add a new iSCSI system. You cannot change the IP address, DNS name, or port number of an existing iSCSI system. To modify the parameters, delete the existing system and add a new one.
