CLARiiON LAB Session -I
I am going to demonstrate LAB Exercise for Allocation Storage to Host from CX Array using Allocation Wizard of Navisphere Manager. I will be giving demo other method as well like allocating storage without wizard because some time host will not login to CX Frame. I will be discussing command line as well who are more interested in scripting.
Login to Navisphere Manager ( Take any IP of any SP’s in your domain and type on browser).
You can see the all the clariion listing under each Domain.
Steps 2: Click Allocation on Left Side Menu Tree.
Steps 3: Click next once you have selected Host name (Whom you are going to present LUN)
You can select Assign LUN
to this server or you can continue without assigning.
Steps 4: Select Next and Select CX frame where you want to create LUN.
Steps 5: Select Next, If you have created RAID Group It will be listed here otherwise you can create new Raid Group by selecting New Raid Group.( I will be discussing later how to create different RAID Group)
Steps 6: Select RAID Group ID and depending on Raid Group select number of disk for example if you are creating Raid 5 (3+1) then select 4 disks.
Once You have created raid group. It will list under RAID Group dialog box.Click Next and select the Number of LUN you want to create on same RAID Group. For example RAID Group created for 3+1 disk of 500 GB each disk means you can use roughly 500X4X70% GB. Now you want to create different size of each LUN on the same RAID Group
Steps 7: Once you have selected Number of LUN and Size of LUN. You can verify the configuration before you run the finish button.
Steps 8: Once you click the Finish Button you can see the status. System will create Storage Group with Server Name (You can change storage group name later) and add created LUN into storage Group.
You can verify the entire configuration by clicking storage group name:
