Re: [Ovirt-devel] [Patch] Make iscsi targets for the developer versions

The above stuff should go into "common-lvm.ks"; that way, you don't have to
repeat this information for i386 and x86_64 kickstarts.

This goes with the above comment of common-lvm.ks

My understanding of the iscsi target is admittedly weak, but I'm not sure this
is what you want to do.  As I understand it, this will actually only create one
 target (node5:disk1), with 3 LUN's, because you are overriding the tid in the
top 3 lines.  I think what you probably want is one target per host, and then
one LUN per target, so your commands would look something like:

tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode target --tid 1 -T node3:disk1
tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode target --tid 2 -T node4:disk1
tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode target --tid 3 -T node5:disk1

tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode logicalunit --tid 1 --lun 1 -b
/dev/VolGroup00/iSCSI1
tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode logicalunit --tid 2 --lun 1 -b
/dev/VolGroup00/iSCSI2
tgtadm --lld iscsi --op new --mode logicalunit --tid 3 --lun 1 -b
/dev/VolGroup00/iSCSI3

That is, have a different tid per target, and then have each of the
/dev/VolGroup00/iSCSI? be LUN 1 on each target.  If you do it that way, then,
you might want to change the name of the logical volumes to "iSCSI3", "iSCSI4",
"iSCSI5", so that they match up with their target names.
