pri> lun create -s 7g -t windows /vol/vol1/newlun
pri> lun show

Thanks for the link , 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,

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)
