Is there a way on the local SAN using the iSCSI initiator to see the inidivual LUNs?  We are trying to backup the LUNs from the local SAN device but cannot see the LUNs to back them up.

You must map the LUNs to the backup host - how you do that depends on the array you have. EMC CLARiiON uses Storage Groups, Symmetrix uses the VMCDB, Network Appliance uses LUN masking.

What storage array are you using?
