Re: msa2312i configuration on linux

I don't think the MSA2XXXi includes the "Internet Storage Name Service" function. If the GUI has such a field, it takes the address of an external iSNS server.

Most users just use the storage array's portal address(es).

Hi,

If i am not wrong, you can configure the iSCSI storage for Cluster without isns.

If you create the Volume it will generate the iqn.

by using iscsi initiator, from both the linux machines you can map to same LUN then you can start configuring the cluster.

Below is the userguide for MSA2312

You can easily configure the iscsi target if you have gui on linux.
