I am missing something, not thinking or googling well enough but I need to mount my Dell MD3000i SAN on CentOS and I can't seem to figure out what to do. The instructions I find talk about running VM's from it or installing linux on it but not how to just mount it as a file system.
I am running Vembu StoreGrid for backups and rather than back up my windows hosts that have this SAN mounted and put the CPU load on them I thought it would be smart to mount those same LUN's on my linux host which is the backup server and back it up directly.
Please help point me in the right direction with the commands on how to do this. Also would there be any conflict with wanting to back up NTFS partitions directly in linux? Will there be any locking or permissions issues? Thanks for your help and time.
