Perform these steps to create a volume (iSCSI LUN) using the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance browser user interface (ZFSSA BUI).
You can access the BUI at https://zfssa_head_ip:215.
Storage volumes (iSCSI LUNs) are provided over network devices. When configuring a volume, you must supply the appropriate network device over which the volume will be served. Oracle SPARC Model 300 Service provides storage access over vnic5 (corresponding to head 1) and vnic7 (corresponding to head 2) of the ZFSSA. You must identify which of these devices you wish to serve the volume over when configuring the volume.
Complete these steps to identify the network interface information for the volume (LUN):
The network you choose will vary depending on which of the two ZFSSA heads is used for the volume (LUN).
Head 1 is associated with the interface named opczs3-2-1-store-aggr.
Head 2 is associated with the interface named opczs3-2-2-store-aggr.
In this example, head 1 is used for the volume, so let's make note of these values:
Interface name: opczs3-2-1-store-aggr
VNIC shortname: vnic5
IP address: 192.168.50.36
Create a target group to enable the volumes (targets) to be shared with only specific initiators (one or more compute instances).
Complete these steps to create a target for the volume (LUN).
'Alias' is an unambiguous reference name for administrators to use to refer to the disk.
If additional security is required, select an 'Initiator authentication mode' and the associated target name and secret. This example does not enable CHAP or RADIUS.
'Network interface' is the name that was listed for the ZFSSA head for the volume (LUN) earlier in this procedure (vnic5).
Targets in the same target group will be visible to the same initiator(s). Complete these steps to create a target group:
You can drag a target to an existing group or to the new group area to create a new group.
In this example, the new group is created with the default name targets-0. You can change the default name, as we did in our example, by clicking the edit symbol that appears to the right of the name when you hover the mouse over the name. In the example, the group is renamed to Example Target Group 1.
