RHEL 6 – ISCSI Administration Series – ISCSI Lun resize


I have started unixadminschool.com ( aka gurkulindia.com) in 2009 as my own personal reference blog, and later sometime i have realized that my leanings might be helpful for other unixadmins if I manage my knowledge-base in more user friendly format. And the result is today's' unixadminschool.com. You can connect me at - https://www.linkedin.com/in/unixadminschool/

    Hi Ramdev,

    Thanks for sharing this steps. I have Question on Step 2.

    You already mention it’s a non destructive task. Still I am thinking, When delete and reattach in tid 3 lun 1, normally the connection will be disappear from server to client for this particular LUN. My Question is how this FS(/test-data) is available while performing this operation ? 

    Thanks in advance for detail.

    Hi Elumalia,

    I am glad  you asked the question.  The delete option will just remove the in-kernel mappings, but it wont terminate the active  i/o happening between the initiator and the target related to the lun, until the iscsi initiator rediscovers and rebinds to the target as per the new kernel mappings.

    Some people complain this functionality as bug and other’s say it is normal behaviour. I chose to believe it is a normal function:)

    Thanks Ramdev for the explanation.  Now I understood the background action.  

    One more question 
    Any idea ISCSI LUN resize will support from which kernel or RHEL version ?
