iscsiadm discovery: no output with Openfiler.

iscsiadm discovery: no output with Openfiler.

I was building my own Oracle RAC 11g cluster ( with Openfiler as my shared storage. Two VM’s as my rac-cluster, one VM with Openfiler as my own SAN (not using the applicance, used the iso-file).  Followed the instructions of the article of Jeffrey Hunter how to build a RAC on OEL and iSCSI, however this article is not based on VM. Will publish my experiences later on.

My Openfiler-VM (named it ‘Openfiler1’) was ready, given access to my both nodes on iSCSI-level, and now I want my rac1-node to discover the iSCSI-drives on my Openfiler-VM.

Command I used on node ‘rac1’, where ‘openfiler1’ is my Openfiler-VM, on a privileged network:

iscsiadm -m discovery -t st –p openfiler1-priv
