Thanks a lot for your answer!


Can you post some example for doing this?


My problem is that I have to refer to a right device in my VM configuration
for xen:


disk = [‘phy:/dev/sdj,xvda,w’]


for live migration purposes the reference to disk must be the same in all
the physical hosts, so I must be shore that sdj points to the right ISCSI


Thanks for any help!

You could use a udev rule to symlink it to a new device name

Hi all,


do someone know how i could rename an iscsi device from


/dev/sde to /dev/sdg?


I mean, I have an iscsi device from a storage with address 7:0:0:12 and I
see it in one host with the name /dev/sde while in the second host i see it
with name /dev/sdg.


I need to rename due to virtualization purposes.


Can someone help me?


Thanks all,

Francesco Gallo
