iSCSI allows your client PC to mount a target as if it were a local drive.

Do you put the same physical drive in two computers at once? Of course not.

The same kind of thing applies to iSCSI. Your symptoms are expected. Trying to mount the same target on multiple machines will likely lead to data corruption and data loss. Use a separate target for each workstation or mount the target on one workstation and share it from there to the other machine.
