Can a mapped NetApp iscsi lun to HPUX host be remaped to a Linux host?

Thanks!

Re: Can a mapped NetApp iscsi lun to HPUX host be remaped to a Linux host?

Providing it is the same file system supported by both hosts, it may work, but I don't think it is recommended.

When you create a LUN  you need to declare its multiprotocol type & it is different for both OSes: "hpux" & "linux" respectively.

LUN Multiprotocol Type

The LUN Multiprotcol Type, or operating system type, specifies the OS of the host accessing the LUN. It also determines the layout of data on the LUN, the geometry used to access that data, and the minimum and maximum size of the LUN.

I feel this may not be possible as the lun type mentioned cannot be changed once specified during lun create and also the disk / filesystem structure also may be different in both flavors of OS.
