Mount a SAN FC Drive in Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.7

Greetings,

I will start by saying I'm completely new to linux.
Here is what we have:
An IBM v7000 SAN
IBM x3650 M3 server
    - has two Brocade 8 gig fiber HBAs ran to redundant Fiber switches
The server is running Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.7 newly installed

I am trying to map a SAN drive, The LUN is created and mapped to the host on the SAN:
Volume Name       
ORACLEDB_DEV
Volume ID      2
Status        Online  
Capacity  1,000.0 GB
Volume UID 60050768028100EFD40000000000000C


And shows up in linux scsi by-id directory as:
scsi-3600605b003e79cd016209e7a2d42ea7b
scsi-3600605b003e79cd016209e7a2d42ea7b-part1
scsi-3600605b003e79cd016209e7a2d42ea7b-part2

How do I map (or mount) to this LUN and make it so that it persists though a server reboot with the same mapping.

Thanks!

fdisk -l should reveal all the local drives on the system which will include iSCSI/FC allocated drives.
more /proc/scsi/scsi

/dev/sdd
/dev/sde etc.

not sure what cli brocade uses
lpfc for emulex HBA
scli for qlogic HBA

bcu for brocade HBA

From the command line utility section:
fcpim page 243

bcu fcpim - -lunlist 1/0

It will tell you which LUN is mapped to which internal drive.

I'm fairly sure the drive I listed above:
scsi-3600605b003e79cd016209e7a2d42ea7b

Is our local SAS drives on the server... how do I see the FC drives?
