can any body send a link which is useful to get cmdlets to create RAID levels WITHOUT creating STORAGE POOLS,i mean by directly selecting disks not by creating storage pools after that create virtualdisks with RAID level
See The Solution
DataOntap PowerShell Toolkit contains several set of cmdlets to work with volumes. Its independent of PowerShell version 2 or 3.
You can use New-NaVol cmdlet to create a new Volume.
Remember to import Data Ontap PowerShell toolkit before you use any of the cmdlet.

the information u sent was helpful.
the thing is ,im new to powershell scrpting n
by using DISKPART.EXE i m able to create VOLUMES n PARTITIONS
and without using DISKPART also i m able to create parttions but unable to create VOLUMES
the commnads u sent were not executed in my power shell V3 .
could u suggest me ,is there need of any istallation of other modules to execute those commands
I guess you are dealing with normal volume and partition creation in windows and not creating Volumes on Controller level.
You need to approach your situation with "Storage" Module in powershell, its got cmdlets to manipulate disks and partitions in windows level.
The below command would get you all cmdlets you need to deal with storage aspects in windows.
Get-Command -Module Storage
Please have further look at the MS Blog below
"Managing Storage with Windows PowerShell on Windows Server 2012"
