Xsan mounting issues
I have an issue with a setup I'm trying to upgrade for a client.
Current setup consists of 3 Intel Xserves on Xsan version 2.2.2 running 10.6.8 on a Qlogic switch.
We need to upgrade the Xserves to 10.9 so I have added 2 new Mac minis (10.9.3) with SANLink 2 thunderbolt to fibre channel adapters to act as MDCs and as temp servers while I upgrade the Xserves and get everything up to the same level.
Eventually they will all have access to the single SAN volume and I will redistribute which are MDCs. 2 of the current Xserves act as MDCs. One is strictly a client (and will remain so)
Here's the issue:
I have everything setup correctly (public and private IPs, all machines can see each other and ping etc...)
I can add the 2 new Minis via XSAN admin on themselves to the SAN but they will not mount the single SAN volume. All machines can see the same LUNS on the RAID via diskutil list.
If I add the Minis from Xsan admin on the Xserve running Xsan 2.2.2 it says "XSAN 2 not installed"
Any thoughts on why I cannot mount the SAN volume on the 2 new Minis?
If my setup is not clear enough I'll be glad to explain more. It's a pretty straight forward setup that's worked very well.
