Re: [linux-lvm] lvm over iscsi


I'm guessing, from my own experiences with lvm, you'll have to either
export the bottom (the PV), or the top (the LV).   Trying to export
the middle puts it out of context.  A logical volume can't be detected
unless its physical volume is detected first (by the kernel?).

I wonder what pvcreate thinks of iscsi volumes.  could you create a pv
on an iscsi volume which is just an exported lv off another server?

I asked this question in icsci mailing list, with no answer, so I try here.
I'm using fc6 2.6.20 as target and 2.18fc6-xen as initiator, my goal
is to export a volume group from the target, in order to be abale to
make a lvscan on the initiator, but i don't succeed.

  iscsiadm --mode node --targetname iqn.2007-05.fr.aic:jimiscsi
--portal --login

-> end with no error, but i have nothing in /proc/scsi/scsi and no
volume are detected by lvscan.

is it possible to export volume group instead of logical ?

Thx for any answer or clue...
