Re: Creating a LUN on VA7410

Here is a link to the product page:

http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/products/disk_arrays/midrange/va7410/index.html

If you follow the 'technical documentation' link on the right side and then 'manuals (guides, supplements, addendums, etc)' [my, isn't web navigation fun?] you should end up here:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&locale=en_US&docIndexId=179911&taskId=101&prodTypeId=12169&prodSeriesId=89018

I beleive that is enough for some bedtime reading ;-)

Re: Creating a LUN on VA7410

John,

The easiest tool to use is cvui. If installed properly just type cvui.
This will load the Commandview manager utility. From there it is straightforward
on how to add a lun. If you need some more direction don't hesitate to ask.

armcfg -L -a -g cara1

Redundancy Group should be either 1 or 2. Alternate between these for the best performance. I usually put all the odd numbered luns on group 1 and all the even numbers on group 2. It makes it easier to remember for me that way.

The size should be a number followed by a qualifier, eg. 100M = 100 Megabytes; 100G = 100 Gigabytes.

What are the chances...
