iscsi connection lost after reboot

We have a QNAP with a LUN and we would like to connect to this device using iscsi so we can send all the backups to that storage.

root@pbs:~# iscsiadm -m discovery -t st -p -o update,1
root@pbs:~# iscsiadm --mode discoverydb --type sendtargets --portal --discover,1
root@pbs:~# iscsiadm --mode node,1
root@pbs:~# iscsiadm -m node -P 1
Iface Name: default
root@pbs:~# iscsiadm -m node --login
Logging in to [iface: default, target:, portal:,3260]
Login to [iface: default, target:, portal:,3260] successful.
root@pbs:~# iscsiadm -m session -o show
tcp: [1],1 (non-flash)

The problem is that this connection is not restored after rebooting the machine. Is there any log we can find in order to troubleshoot the issue?

Another test we made is that we perform the connection, we restart the iscsi. service and the connection is restored.
