Is the whole volume group on the one LUN?
Is the LUN sliced?

This is probably one for vgimport, but can you show us the output from fdisk -l /dev/sdb, or whatever it has appeared as?

Hi,

The NetApp administrator should be able to tell you if there is any I/O on the LUN, if there is I/O you'll have to find out which server already has the disk access. Otherwise if this was a LUN that was setup using LVM - you will have to export it from one server, import it on the other server and then grow the volumes to the required configuration.

But remember;

If the LUN is already mounted on one server, forcing a mount on an other server - will be bad for the disks health and possibly your future job prospects - depending what's on the LUN.

If this is any kind of HA solution, the LUN will be visible in the service groups and it may have to be scanned from inside the service group.

If this is a NEW LUN and is assigned to a server as /dev/sdb, then you should be able to use the standard admin processes to pull the disk in and use it.

UNIX and Linux

Unix (trademarked as the UNIX certification mark) is a very mature family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that evolved from the original AT&T Unix. Unix development starting in the 1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others. Unix was first targeted for the Bell System and AT&T licensed Unix to outside parties. In the 1970s time period, this lead to a variety of for-profit as well as not-for-profit Unix variants.
In the early days, this included the University of California, Berkeley (BSD), Microsoft (Xenix), IBM (AIX), and Sun Microsystems (Solaris). In the early 1990s, AT&T sold their Unix rights to Novell. In 1995 Novell sold their Unix business to the Santa Cruz Operation (SCO). The UNIX trademark was passed to The Open Group, a "neutral" industry consortium. The Open Group promoted the use of the UNIX trademark for certified operating systems that comply with the Single UNIX Specification (SUS). In 2014 Apple's macOS became the Unix version with the largest global install base and macOS remains the largest Unix-user base today.
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and libraries. Popular free open source Linux distributions include Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. Commercial Linux distributions include Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Linux may be freely modified and redistributed. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any purpose.
