That's generally not true: System s like HP-UX have persistent I/O-path to device name mappings (/etc/ioconfig, etc.), but systems like Linux recreate the devices every boot or every module load. If you use non-continuous LUNs and then restart the SCSI module, the device names after a filled gap will change. Same for FC and iSCSI (IMHO). > > Can this be done using open-iscsi in Linux? > > /dev/sdc1 -> iqn.XXXX :LUN00 > Host Mount /ora0 > /dev/sdd1 -> iqn.XXXX :LUN01 > Host Mount /ora1 Someone more competent than I will answer, I'm sure.
