Re: How to add LUN in Netapp ?

on the filer prompt issue:

filer> lun setup

and answer all the questions asked with the type of LUN you want/need.

Then do the things on the host to attach the LUN.

Hi Vijay,

Depends on your environment, if its Windows based though…I would recommend you use SnapDrive to manage your LUN environment as opposed to doing all this from the filer prompts.

Snapdrive will help with things like lun alignment and snapshot management…
