[ClusterLabs] How to configure my ocf_heartbeat_iscsi resource(s) such that I have both paths to the LUN?

Hi folks,

I'm running some test scenarios with an ocf_heartbeat_iscsi pacemaker
using the following XIV multipath'ed configuration:

I created a single XIV iscsi host definition containing all the pacemaker
host (cluster node) 'Initiator's:

XIV 7812475>>host_list_ports host=pacemaker_iscsi
Host              Type    Port Name
pacemaker_iscsi   iSCSI   iqn.2005-03.org.open-iscsi:6539c3daf095
pacemaker_iscsi   iSCSI   iqn.2005-03.org.open-iscsi:11d639c0976c
pacemaker_iscsi   iSCSI   iqn.1994-05.com.redhat:74ca24d6476
pacemaker_iscsi   iSCSI   iqn.1994-05.com.redhat:ea17bebd09a
pacemaker_iscsi   iSCSI   iqn.1994-05.com.redhat:b852a67852c

Here is the XIV Target IP:port / IQN info:
Target: iqn.2005-10.com.xivstorage:012475
Target: iqn.2005-10.com.xivstorage:012475

I mapped a single 17Gb Lun to the XIV host: 20017380030BB110F

>From ocf_heartbeat_iscsi man page, it didn't seem obvious to me how I might
specify multiple
IP Portals (i.e.  both the .108 and .109 IPs) to a single
ocf_heartbeat_iscsi resource.   So,
I went ahead and configured my resource using just the .108 IP path, as

Using the above XIV definitions, I created a single iscsi pacemaker
resource using only one of the two IP
paths to the XIV LUN:

[root at zs95kj VD]# pcs resource show iscsi_r4

 Resource: iscsi_r4 (class=ocf provider=heartbeat type=iscsi)
  Attributes: portal=
  Operations: start interval=0s timeout=120 (iscsi_r4-start-interval-0s)
              stop interval=0s timeout=120 (iscsi_r4-stop-interval-0s)
              monitor interval=120 timeout=30

I'm looking for suggestions as to how I should configure my iscsi resource
(s) such that I have both paths (.108 and .109)
to the LUN available to my application?     Do I need to create a second
iscsi resource for the .109 path, and colocate
them so that they move about the cluster together?

As an aside, I have run into situations where the second IP (.109) comes
online to where my iscsi_r4 resource is running (how or why,
I'm not sure),  which introduces problems because iscsi_r4 only manages
the .108 connection.

Thanks in advance...
