What is LUN masking?

Unread postby rajeevmahura » Sat Jul 05, 2008 10:59 am

LUN (Logical Unit Number) Masking is an authorization process that makes a LUN available to some hosts and unavailable to other hosts.
LUN Masking is implemented primarily at the HBA (Host Bus Adapter) level. LUN Masking implemented at this level is vulnerable to any attack that compromises the HBA.
Some storage controllers also support LUN Masking.
LUN Masking is important because Windows based servers attempt to write volume labels to all available LUN's. This can render the LUN's unusable by other operating systems and can result in data loss.

Thanks for your whole labor on this website. My mum enjoys getting into internet research and it's really obvious why. I know all of the compelling mode you render simple things by means of the web blog and therefore welcome contribution from some other people on the area plus our own princess is becoming educated a great deal. Take advantage of the remaining portion of the new year. Your doing a wonderful job.
