Configuring an iSCSI initiator on RHEL5/6
Make sure the iSCSI initiator software is installed,
rpm -q iscsi-initiator-utils
Enable the deamons,
chkconfig iscsi on
chkconfig iscsid on
service iscsi restart
service iscsid restart
service iscsi status
service iscsid status
Make sure the Disk Array allows your initiator to connect. Show your initiator IQN,
cut -f2 -d'=' /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi
Register target iSCSI LUNs
Show the available LUNs,
iscsiadm -m discovery -t sendtargets -p DISK_ARRAY_IP
Show information and connect to a LUN,
iscsiadm -m node -T IQN -p DISK_ARRAY_IP
iscsiadm -m node -T IQN -p DISK_ARRAY_IP -l
Note. to connect to all LUNs at once,
#iscsiadm -m discovery -t st -l
Unregister target iSCSI LUNs
See the current iSCSI sessions,
iscsiadm -m session
disconnect from all LUNs,
iscsiadm -m node -U all
disable at next boot,
iscsiadm -m node -T <IQN> -p <IP_ADDRESS> --op delete
Other nodes
When you resize the LUN on the Disk Array, rescan,
iscsiadm -m session --rescan
Note. The good old way for Fiber Channel was,
#echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host0/scan
