First create the ISCSI lun on the EMC array

It is recommended by Sun to get better performance to use static iSCSI configuration

On EMC

Create the file system with the following options:
Under File Systems:
type: native
Note: Do not check Auto extend option.

Under iscsi:
Create an iscsi target
In “network portals” enter 10.10.1.250,10.10.1.25
Under iscsi:
Create a LUN set the size equivalent to the file system, and assign a LUN id.

On Client host

checkout the client’s initiator…

iscsiadm list initiator-node
Initiator node name: iqn.1986-03.com.sun:01:00144f864764.46f26e3f
Initiator node alias: –

On EMC

Under iscsi – Lun mask, enter the “Initiator node name”
