Creating Virtual Volumes Sequentially

IHAC who noticed that multi-volume creation doesn't let you specify the next increment from the SSMC GUI (Version 2.2). Example: Create Volume "ABC_Test" 10x's starting at ".12". When you need 5 more volumes with the same name sequence it freaks. Example: "ABC_Test.22" ....... "ABC_Test.22.6" 

What they'd like to see is the following: 

"ABC_Test.22" ...... "ABC_Test.26"

Re: Creating Virtual Volumes Sequentially

Correct. For that they will need to use the command line:
createvv -cnt 5 [options] <usr_cpg> ABC_Test.22 <size>

Re: Creating Virtual Volumes Sequentially

You can do this with SSMC 2.3.1. When you create the second set of volumes, use the form <name>.<next #> and then specify how many additional volumes you want in the Additional Settings section.

So the name you'd start with for the second set of volumes in your example would be ABC_Test.22 and SSMC would create ABC_Test.22 through ABC_Test.26, when the Number of volumes is 5.
