Prepare to Mount the Volume

When you mount a new volume, you need to provide the iSCSI qualified name (IQN) for the initiators (compute instances) where the LUN will be mounted. This process should be repeated on each of the compute instances where an iSCSI LUN will be mounted.

Complete these steps to identify the IQN so you are prepared to mount the volume.

  1. Log in to the compute instance where you will mount the LUN with root privileges.
  2. Use the iscsiadm list initiator-node command to identify the initiator node name.

    Ensure that you document the entire string (iqn.1986-03.com.sun:01:opc-192-168-50-6, in this example).

    root@opc-192-168-50-6:~# iscsiadm list initiator-node
    Initiator node name: iqn.1986-03.com.sun:01:opc-192-168-50-6
    Initiator node alias: solaris.us.oracle.com
