I realise what my problem is. Earlier i used ubuntu and In ubuntu when
a new logical volume is created, it is listed under /dev/vg/ocfs where
vg is the volume group and ocfs is the logical volume. In opensuse, I
'm unable to find out what/where my logical volume is:

I had mentioned Path=/dev/vg/ocfs in /etc/ietd.conf which does not exist.

Target iqn.2009-09.com.ezhome:ocfs
        Lun 0 Path=/dev/vg/ocfs,Type=fileio

Thanks to Mike for guiding me in the right direction. I belive this is
the problem. Experts, your inputs on how the logical volumes are
mapped in opensuse please...
