ISCSI Configuration Options in an HA Environment


iSCSI configurations are different for primary and secondary HA hosts. To configure iSCSI you must ensure that the primary and secondary HA hosts are not connected in an HA cluster.

In HA environments, review the /var/log/messages file for errors in your iSCSI storage configuration.

Ensure that you use a different initiatorname on the primary and secondary HA hosts. Your iSCSI device must be configured to enable each initiatorname to access the same volume on the iSCSI device.

You configure the initiatorname in the /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi file. The initiatorname is used by JSA to identify the volume on the iSCSI device where the /store or /store/ariel file system is mounted.
