oVirt nodes are iSCSI clients and each node needs to have a different
InitiatorName value.
Eventually you can modify initiatorname of a node before running discovery
against oVirt and rebooting it (or restarting iscsi services).
You can edit the file or use the iscsi-iname command.
It must be named with an iqn name in the format of
iqn.YYYY-MM.reverse.domain.name:OptionalIdentifier
Typically you configure your iSCSI storage array giving access to the lun
to be used as a storage domain to all oVirt hosts initiators. Or you can
use chap authentication or both
