    Questions About Configuring Multipath Devices into Logical Volume [Linux]

    jonp Newbie

      I'm trying to create a logical volume in RHEL 5 from a volume on my Nimble SAN.

       

      Where I am lost is, once multipathing is configured and both NICs are bound to the software iSCSI initiator, I see two multipath devices showing in fdisk (dm-2 and dm-3).

       

      Do I partition both devices and add them into a single logical volume, or have I done something wrong?

       

      What I have done so far (following the guide provided by Nimble):

      • Created the volume on the Nimble and assigned the initiator group from the Linux host to it.
      • Configured both NICs (separate subnets) and bound them to the iSCSI software initiator.
      • Configured multipathing.
      • Discovered targets.
      • Logged into targets.
