My mail server fails to send email to your 800goquick account for some reason.
The time in StarWind's log files means local time when the record was logged.
If the log is not so big (under 1MB) you could send it to me zipped.

Have you received my answer (08/31) about the issue with ISID values in the MS initiator and a work around for it for your case?

Yes I did. I think all the emails that you have sent from your email address has arrived at my inbox fine.
Yes i would contact Microsoft support to see if I can get any help on that.
I beleive the workaround should work fine. But the thing is there is only one machine that is doing the multiple access to the image file. Rest of the machines are fine.This is the machine (which is a laptop) which I put on standby every day twice and turn it backon. Since the initiator is running on it all the time as service , it is trying to connect. May be I will uninstall the initiator and see what happens.

Please let us know if you get any info about the ISID issue from MS.
The issue with stand-by of the machine is an existing iSCSI connection is not closed normally, so the other TCP-peer (StarWind) knows nothing that the initiator disappeared for some time and it keeps the session opened.
When the same host is coming back from a stand-by or is switched on, there is no problems if it uses the same InaitiatorName+ISID pair. In the case StarWind closes the old session according to RFC 3720 and opens a new session.
But if the host changes its ISID, it will be taken for another iSCSI entity and the old session will be preserved. If the device allows the only session it will reject all such login attempts (an example we can see in your log file).
