I suppose your LUN is presented to your nodes via iSCSI.
This bring a SCSI device to your nodes. Find wihch, with lsscsi for
example (install it via "apt-get install lsscsi").
Suppose that it is /dev/sdb.
Look at its size with fdisk -l /dev/sdb.
If it's 500GB, you will have to reconnect the iSCSI Target, and probably
have to stop your VMs...
If the size is good (3TB), then let's go one level up.
Here I also suppose you have LVM on top of iSCSI.
running "pvs" as root will list your PVs with their size and free space.
Here, you'll see that /dev/sdb is 500GB and has free space.
You can resize it with "pvresize /dev/sdb".
After that, your VG will be bigger, because it contains the resized PV.
And you can add more VMs and disks inside that storage.
