Configuring Multipath in Centos 7 for ISCSI storage LUNS

Install Packages

yum -y install iscsi-initiator-utils
yum install device-mapper-multipath -y

Starting and Enabling the Service 

systemctl start iscsi;
systemctl start iscsid ;
systemctl start multipathd ;

systemctl enable iscsi ;
systemctl enable iscsid ;
systemctl enable multipathd ;

Discovering the iSCSI Targets
iscsiadm -m discovery -t sendtargets -p 10.1.1.100
iscsiadm -m discovery -t sendtargets -p 10.1.0.100


Login to all the targets
iscsiadm -m node -l

Configure basic Multipath  on both Server’s(controller/Controller2)

mpathconf --enable --with_multipathd y

cat /etc/multipath.conf

defaults {
 polling_interval        10
 path_selector           "round-robin 0"
 path_grouping_policy    multibus
 path_checker            readsector0
 rr_min_io               100
 max_fds                 8192
 rr_weight               priorities
 failback                immediate
 no_path_retry           fail
 user_friendly_names     yes
}

Adding Target partition to multipath

Adding Multipath Alias for the Iscsi LUNs in /etc/multipath.conf

multipaths {
        multipath {
                wwid                    36a4badb00053ae7f0000181654753fe5

        }
        multipath {

alias                   LUN1
        }
}

[root@controller ~]# systemctl restart multipathd
