Vandy_Kh
    Dear All Expert,

    I create 2 volumes for pool and repository as cluster servers (2 vm servers).

    I try to create storage repository many times but got error message as below:

    1. first message appears as below:

    The Job has timed out while executing, and will be aborted.

    2. than I try create one more and error message as below:

    This error message I try to fix with command on both vm servers below and after that I try again but still got error the same:

    #dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mapper/36090a0a84094b4da520f65332e4eb3f6 bs=4K count=4

    Please kindly give advice for this.

    Thanks and regards,

        The error indicates you already have a ocfs2 filesystem on the target volumes. Are you sure there isn't anything on the volumes?

          Hi All Expert,

          Now I have re-install, VM Server, VM Manager and try to create new 2 volumes on Storage.

          Note: I am using Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with VM Manager.

          On both VM Servers, after I type iscsiadm command, on both severs show the same result as below:

          [root@ovmserver-node1 ~]# iscsiadm -m node

          Should I delete both of (/dev/mapper/36090a0a840946466620fa5bf4f4e3383) and (/dev/mapper/36090a0a840947460620f75bf4f4e133d)? If I delete (/dev/mapper/36090a0a840947460620f75bf4f4e133d) it will affect to Server Pool Cluster or not?
