To begin with you need a FlexArray license

Re: how to add lun array of 3rd party

Thanks for the response.

 

Once we have the license , How to add a lun array to Hosts?

 

Which is same a normal lun assignment ?

 

For example:

 

pri> vol create vol1 aggr1 10g
pri> vol status
pri> ping <windows ip address>
pri> lun create -s 7g -t windows /vol/vol1/newlun
pri> lun show
pri> igroup create -i -t windows igroup_name iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft:chennai
pri> igroup status
pri> lun map /vol/vol1/newlun igroup_name

 

ALso , How to identify lun array(3rd party ..like emc , hitachi .....) over general luns.
Is there any commands to distinguish

 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Have you had a look at the FlexArray Implementation Guide?

Thanks for the link  Smiley Wink , I got some of the information.

 

Coming to my other question  , In sysconfig -a /sysconfig -r outputs you will get mixed outputs , where as i want to distinguish genral luns (From disks in shelfs ) & lun arrays , I just want to know whether it is possible to distinguish luns from ( disk shelf) as one outputs and lun arrys(EMC , HItachi ,HP XP IBM XP) as other output , It would be helpful in while adding disks in lun array.

 

Thanks in Advance,

Eswar

sysconfig -a / -r will not give you any LUN information, sysconfig -r will give you aggregate / RAID / disk info. When you add in the frreign disks, create an aggregate for those disks, then a volume(s) and then your Lun(s)
