The filesystem corruption on iSCSI LUN on the Oracle Linux 7

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Oracle Linux 7
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7
  • SAN


Remapping LUNs to a different LUN-ID/SCSI-ID without rescanning SCSI bus on the host can cause data corruption

Original mapping:
::> lun mapping show
Vserver    Path                                      Igroup   LUN ID  Protocol
---------- ----------------------------------------  -------  ------  --------
svm_linux  /vol/vol_linux/lun1                       linux_iscsi   1  iscsi
svm_linux  /vol/vol_linux/lun2                       linux_iscsi   2  iscsi

New mapping:
::> lun mapping show
Vserver    Path                                      Igroup   LUN ID  Protocol
---------- ----------------------------------------  -------  ------  --------
svm_linux  /vol/vol_linux/lun1                       linux_iscsi   2  iscsi
svm_linux  /vol/vol_linux/lun2                       linux_iscsi   1  iscsi
