Network Storage Protocols Discussions
I am using the following ONTAP simulator version.
NetApp Release 8.1RC3X18 7-Mode: Wed Feb 15 19:28:19 PST 2012
I created a iSCSI LUN and presented to the host.
From the host side, i observed the Target device(netapp) is connected. But in "Bound Volumes and Devices page, the volume/LUN is not observed. I have attached the snapshots.
Please refer the following excerpt from the filer.. I presented the same LUN to 2 different iSCSI Groups.
vigor> igroup show
iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft:scenic (iSCSI) (ostype: windows):
iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft:srmesx3-vm4 (iSCSI) (ostype: windows):
vigor> lun show

Please refer the attachments and Could anyone helps to solve this problem.
Note: I tried to Log on/Connect the Target device's connection and it shows the connected status..
How to get the volume/iSCSI LUN in host side.?
Well, maybe a stupid question, but did you rescan disks on the host?
Yes, I Rescanned the disks as well as used the Refresh option.. but it didn't work.
Is there any limitations on LUN Numbers? Should it be within the range from 50 - 200 like that?
Any hint relevant to this is appreciated.
I solved the issue.. issue was due to igroup creation and mapping it to the initiator..
i used the CLI commands to create igroup and mapped it..
igroup create -i -t windows iscsi_win_grp
igroup add iscsi_win_grp iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft:scenictest
then mapped the lun to this group name..
