Rebooted iSCSI target and now VM's are not starting

Basically, the title says it all. We rebooted our NAS, but now, the VMs that were stored on there are not able to restart. This is the error we get.

iscsiadm: No portals found
command '/usr/bin/iscsiadm --mode discovery --type sendtargets --portal 1XX.1XX.9.1XX' failed: exit code 21
iscsiadm: Could not login to [iface: default, target:, portal: 1XX.1XX.9.1XX,3260].
iscsiadm: initiator reported error (19 - encountered non-retryable iSCSI login failure)
iscsiadm: Could not log into all portals
Logging in to [iface: default, target:, portal: 1XX.1XX.9.1XX,3260] (multiple)
command '/usr/bin/iscsiadm --mode node --targetname --login' failed: exit code 19
Volume group "turing20" not found
TASK ERROR: can't activate LV '/dev/turing20/vm-223-disk-0': Cannot process volume group turing20

We tried rebooting our nodes but that didn't help either. Also, I should add that Proxmox is no longer recognizing our iSCSI target, and is showing 0 B, when it is in fact 10 TB.

Any suggestions?

It seems that whenever tgt is restarted, my lun is removed. Why is that happening? Any help out there?
