Proxmox iscsi storage not updated after changing size in FreeNAS

May 29, 2019

I have a proxmox cluster with a FreeNAS server for storage, from the FreeNAS I share zvols with iSCSI (each zvol has it's own target/extent) and then I use that as VM storage. When I need to increase the disk I edit the zvol in FreeNAS but that change is not seen in Proxmox. The thing I have to do right now is that I shutdown the VM, detach the storage from proxmox, remove all iscsi config for this particular zvol and then I just add everything again, by doing this I can see the new size in proxmox.

Is there any way I can avoid doing this? It's pretty time consuming.

I did try running: iscsiadm --mode session --rescan on the proxmox host but it didn't help.
