Storage devices connected to multiple systems in a cluster use the multi-initiator capability of the Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) Specification.
Each system uses a host adapter, or I/O card, as the interface to each SCSI bus it is connected to and this host adapter is generally referred to as a SCSI controller or a SCSI initiator. This document discusses why it is necessary to change the scsi-initiator-id on the systems of a cluster when sharing SCSI storage devices between them. This document also provides steps to follow when making these changes and how to decide which SCSI address to use.
Note: See the Solaris Cluster 3.x product documentation for more details.
