after adding new iscsi target port, still the session state of that target port is showing offline

Hi,

 

 I wanted to configure new iscsi port on HPUX system, i added the target port  address and configured it, once done, went to array side and searched for that host iqn number , but was nt able to find the same, came to host, then when i ran "iscsiutil -pVS" command it gave me below result

Here in the output, the "session State" is showing as "offline", is that the reason for host not getting listed on Array side.

 

 

Any help is appreciated here.

 

Thanks,
