Oracle VM: Rescan Physical Disks on OVMM Re-uses Legacy Auto-generated Display Names of Deleted LUNs for New LUNs (Doc ID 2602923.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 30, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.5 to 3.4.5 [Release OVM34]
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

Though no problem of daily practice, sometimes it is confusing the display name of a deleted LUN repopulates to another newly added LUN.

For instance, initially there is a LUN discovered in Oracle VM Manager, and has an auto-generated display name: SUN (1).
Later SUN (1) LUN recycled and a new LUN added.
After Rescan Physical Disks on Oracle VM Manager, the new LUN is discovered with display name: SUN (1).
Even though the display name is NOT a unique identifier, it confuses end users.
