+      This provides a pool based on a SCSI HBA. Volumes are preexisting SCSI
+      LUNs, and cannot be created via the libvirt APIs. Since /dev/XXX names
+      aren't generally stable, it is recommended to configure the pool
+      to use <code>/dev/disk/by-path</code> or <code>/dev/disk/by-id</code>
+      for the target path. These provide persistent stable naming for LUNs
