Then you don't have a drive mounted at that location. Your files are probably going into that directory, not onto the SAN.

Linux will just see a SAN disk as just another SCSI disk, nothing special.

Right. That location is nothing more than a directory. Read my previous post...chances are, your files are just getting copied to local disk, into that directory, not to the SAN.

Ok...this is the THIRD TIME:

YOU CAN'T SEE IT, BECAUSE IT'S NOT MOUNTED. You DO NOT have the SAN volume mounted to that mount-point.

Type in "mount". You should see the SAN device listed...if you don't, it isn't mounted, period. There's nothing else to do, other than mount it.
