Re: MSA2012fc Connectivity with RHEL 5 Host - define mount points

In the 2012 you need to define the WWID of the HBA in the DL580 to access the LUNS created on the 2012. Once the HBA has the proper access, the OS should see the LUNS as /dev/sdX where X will be a letter i.e. /dev/sda, /dev/sdb etc etc

Re: MSA2012fc Connectivity with RHEL 5 Host - define mount points

once you can access the LUNS you need to create the directory structure then add the device and the mount point in /etc/fstab

# mkdir /u0{1,2,3,4,5}
# vi /etc/fstab

an example of /etc/fstab would be something like

/dev/sda /u01 ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/sdb /u02 ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/sdc /u03 ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/sdd /u04 ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/sde /u05 ext3 defaults 1 2

man fstab for more information
