Fibre Storage Cannot Be Discovered In OVM 3.x (Doc ID 1465635.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 09, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.1.1 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

Initially, after discovering the OVM servers, the FC storage was seen under (Storage > SAN Servers > Unmanaged FibreChannel Storage Array),  but it is not able to assign this storage to anything. When trying to delete those drivers via OVM manager and rediscovering OVM servers again, they do not show up under the group again.

Changes

 Manually changed the /etc/multipath.conf on OVM server and set "user_friendly_names yes"
