There isn’t really a procedure to add a LUN.

What you need to do on the SAN is add the IQN or WWNN to the LUN on the SAN.

Then if you’ve created a storage network then select the HBA and select RESCAN and the LUN will appear under StoragevAdaptors

Then select Add Storage and select LUN to format and prepare a datastore
