Connecting to NetApp from an rx2800 hpux 11.31

I have a new (not in production yet) HP rx2800 server from which I want to talk to a NetApp FAS 3210 v8.0.2 7-mode v-filer.  This is my first iscsi venture so I have no previous experience to draw on.


What I have done so far (actual IP is 10.?.?.?):

 1) iscsiutil -a -I  (that's -<capital eye>


 2) iscsiutil -pD  (Discovery Target Info)

      Shows IP  Address:

      iSCSI TCP port: 3260

      iSCSI Portal Group Tape: 1



 3) ioscan -NH 64000

      Last line says:


        64000/0xfa00/0x5    ctl    NETAPP  LUN (Note the NETAPP seems encouraging :-)


 4) iscsiutil -pO  (Operational Target Info)

      Get NO output; just another prompt


 5) ioscan -kfnC disk

      Class     I  H/W Path     Driver S/W State   H/W Type     Description
      disk      0  0/1/1/  sdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       HP      IR Volume
                         /dev/dsk/c0t0d0     /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s2   /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0    /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s2
                         /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s1   /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s3   /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s1  /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s3
      disk      2  255/1/0.0.0  sdisk   CLAIMED     DEVICE       TEAC    DVD-ROM DW-224EV
                         /dev/dsk/c1t0d0   /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0

    Note: No new disks show up :-(


Any idea of what I may have done wrong or should try next?


TIA, Lee

Perform the following steps:
1. Resart the iscsi daemons .
# /sbin/init.d/./iscsi stop
# /sbin/init.d/./iscsi start

2. Rescan the hardware
# ioscan -fnC disk
# insf -evH <hardware path>
