I'm not sure how much help you'll get from the community.  StorNext is a 
proprietary product that appears to have its own drivers and management 
tools.  If you want documentation, ask the vendor for it.

Well, on standard SAN products you'll see block devices corresponding to 
the volumes that you've exported from the SAN to the host system.  You 
can create filesystems on them and label those just like you would any 
other block device.
