What is the minimum size of a LUN that we can create?

What is the minimum size of a LUN that we can create in netapp storage?

Re: What is the minimum size of a LUN that we can create?

Hi Rajasekhar,

The LUN Multi protocol Type, or operating system type, specifies the OS of the host accessing the LUN. It also determines the layout of data on the LUN, the geometry used to access that data, and the minimum and maximum size of the LUN. 

Basing on the lun geometry, minimum and maximum sizes can be determined. have a look at this

NAS01> lun show

        /vol/Vsphere_vol1/vsphere_lun1    500g (536870912000)  (r/w, online, mapped)

NAS01*> lun geometry /vol/Vsphere_vol1/vsphere_lun1

SCSI Disk Geometry:

             512 bytes/sector

            1024 sectors/track

              16 tracks/cylinder (heads)

           16384 sectors/cylinder

           64000 cylinders

      1048576000 sectors

         8388608 cylinder size (8 MB)

    536870912000 device size (512000 MB)

    549747425280 max resize size (524280 MB)
