I have created two virtual machines with oracle VM which is Xen based VM and installed openfiler 2.3 on one VM and Centos 5.2 on another VM as iscsi client which has iscsi initiator.
the client could discover the target successfully with iscsiadm -m discovery -t sendtargets -p IP address of the target iscsiadm -m node -l gives the sucessful message but I could not see any block devices in /dev. Instead of /dev/sda , it is showing as /dev/sga i did cat /proc/partitions and it is showing sda there. But in /dev/ it is showing as /dev/sga, instead of ./dev/sda. So I am not able to partion the /dev/sga as it says ' it is not a block device' I checked the syslog with tail -f /var/log/messages and it has the following error messages rac2 iscsid: received iferror -38 rac2 last message repeated 2 times rac2 iscsid: connection1: o is operational after recovery rac2 kernel : ping timeout of 5 sec expired , last rx 825664 , last ping 826914, now 828164 rac2 kerenl : connection 1:0:iscsi:detected conn error (1011) rac2 kerenl: sd 0:0:0:2: SCSCI error : retrun code =0x00020000 rac2 kernel: end_request : I/O error on dev sdc, logical block 0 rac2 kerenl : Buffere I/O error on device sda, logical block 0 rac2 kernel : Dev sdc: unnable to read RDB block 0 rac2 iscsid : kerenel reports ISCSI connection 1:0 error (1011) state 3 I stuckup here for weekes and not able to move forward. I need to install Oracle rac on Oracle VM for testing with openfiler. Any help is appreciated I am very very thankful on this Thanks Chava --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
