Block storage status on the portal improvement

The detail sreen of a block storage on the portal shows status of the volume but it shows as 'Active' even though it loses one of two target portal. It is always taking time to identify which one of two paths is actually lost. Everytime a user detected iSCSI failover, they will talk to the support team to find out which of two paths is lost by using commands on OS.

If you would provide staus of each target portal in addiotion to current volume level status, it will reduce hours of effort of both customers and the support team.

The similar improvement can be seen on port status of baremetal servers on its detail screen.
