Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • Should I be concerned about messages indicating "LUN assignments on this target have changed"?
  • Whenever LUNs are reconfigured on the storage array, the kernel reports the following warnings:

       kernel: sd 1:0:5:58: Warning! Received an indication that the LUN assignments on this target have changed. 
       The Linux SCSI layer does not automatically remap LUN assignments.
