iSCSI Initiator errors after trying to set up IPsec.

In an effort to set up some sort of security on the IP traffic between the systems using iSCSI I attempted to implement IPsec. In doing so the Windows iSCSI initiators were no longer able to communicate with the targets. So after removing the settings in the local security policy most of the systems were back up and could see the vhds with the exception of one. This system can actually see the targets but whenever I try and create a session it gives me the error "The Target name is not found or is marked hidden from login". An interesting note is that when I try and discover the host system through a specific portal it won't show the targets, only when I set my iSNS server (which is the same machine). My suspicion is that the configuration settings from when I tried to set it up to use IPSec is still in there and flushing that out would do the trick. I would even be fine with reinstalling the initiator software if I could figure out how to uninstall it. (This system is using Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise). Jeez I'm just getting scatterbrained now, any ideas?

Software/Hardware used:
Microsoft iSCSI Initiator, Microsoft iSCSI Software Target

    So the initial problem was that I had the wrong iSCSI initiator name, after changing it, removing and then adding the iSNS server address now I simply get "Login Error" when I try connecting to a target. I even tried hacking out the configuration settings from the registry with no luck (the same steps worked on another server). Wonder if this update helps at all...
