Viewing a list of LUNs

Whether your environment uses multipathing or not, you have several options for viewing LUNs that are mapped to the host. The sanlun lun show all command works for all environments and protocols. If you are using an iSCSI software initiator, you also have a choice between using the iscsiadm command or the iscsi command, depending on your version of Linux.


  1. To view the list of LUNs mapped to your host, run the appropriate command for your system environment.
    The following table summarizes the commands and the environments that support them. For more information on the commands and their options, see the man pages.
    Note: You can use the sanlun command to display LUN information and the iscsiadm command to view iSCSI information.
    If you are using... Enter one of the following commands...
