Workflow Example: (C-mode) Create new vServer and volumes

This workflow allows the user to create a new vServer on a selected cluster, and create up to 10 volumes of the same size and security style.  This workflow is very straightforward and it has a couple of other capabilities in it that can be useful as examples for other workflows (staggered user inputs & looping).  More specifics:

User Inputs:

  • Select from the available Clusters in your environment (pulled from an OC UM 5.0 or 5.1 datasource and LOCKED)
  • Identify the of the vServer to create on the selected cluster
  • Select the security style for the vServer
  • Identify the IP & Gateway to use for the vServer
  • Select the Cluster Home Port to use for the vServer LIF
  • Identify a volume prefix, size and number of volumes to create (up to 10)
