I am follwoing the below link to build a RAC database for learning purpose. On first page of this link where we configured iscsi targets, i am getting /dev/iscsi does not exists.

problem, i think is as below, i am getting multiple links
[root@NODE1 dev]# cd /dev/disk/by-path
[root@NODE1 by-path]# ls -l *openfiler* | awk '{FS=" "; print $9 " " $10 " " $11}' -> ../../sdf -> ../../sdf1 -> ../../sdc -> ../../sdc1 -> ../../sdg -> ../../sdg1 -> ../../sdd -> ../../sdd1 -> ../../sde -> ../../sde1
in actual post, output is as below -> ../../sdb -> ../../sdd -> ../../sdc
Please suggest, what i am doing wrong....

    I think you haven't finished all the commands in the blog.

    You got the sdb sdc sdd devices which is good.

    the next step is follow with the udev part of the blog, that udev will create custom rules that will put the specific devices on /dev/iscsi/..

    if you are familiar with oracleasm, you can just use oracleasm createdisk on top of /dev/sdb and create oracleasm devices

    or, complete the blog post and use udev devices.

    but you are half way.
