Hello,

    Does anyone out there know how to mount a RDM on a RHEL 6.2 vm? Does the mount appear automatically, or do I have to mount it? If I do have to manually mount it, which device is it?

I already have the SAN mount visible and active in ESXi 4.1.

The more specific you are the better ;~)

Thank you in advance!

Very little configuration in the VM, you just add a new disk to the virtual machine, but select RDM instead of VMDK,mand select the LUN.

See if the kernel detects the new device - dmesg | tail
fdisk -l (See the new device if it is shown here)
If it is a new disk, you'll have to create a partition and format it.

fdisk /dev/<new device>
Press n to add new partition
specify the start and end cylinders
press w to write to the partition table
Now run this command to create the ext3 filesystem on it

mkfs -t ext3 /dev/<device>

Mount it
mount /dev/<device> /mnt

Good luck
