There aren't any special steps needed for iSCSI over any other kind of
shared storage (once you've configured the initiators & the devices are
visible to the OS).

Creating volume groups and using logical volumes for GFS is a good idea
if you are likely to want to resize your devices at a later time but is
not strictly necessary.

Other than that, the steps you detailed should work fine.

Kind regards,
Bryn.
