Re: Disk Array

Hi,

You have a Nike 20 disk array.

Go to Gridmanager and see te presentation screen. There, you will have a grid of disks according to your configuration. If all of the disks are marked "ENA" or "RDY", then you have all the disks attached to a LUN and can't create anymore. Only disks marked "UNB" can be used to create LUNs.

HTH,

Re: Disk Array

Hello,

C2300 is a Nike 20.

Follow the links I gave you and it should be fine.

Explaining how to access Gridmanager here would take a long time. You need to have some manuals and I'm providing the links to them.

Re: Disk Array

I think that all 12 disks have already configured but if you'd like to create the LUN again with different factors like RAID level, stripe segment size, the first thing that you have to do is to unbind the existing LUNs.
I think that you can do this in SAM.
Highlight an item C2300 and unbind it under Action field, I guess.
After unbinding, SAM's not going to generate a message any more "SAM IS UNABLE TO BIND A NEW LUN ON YOUR DISK ARRAY BECUASE THERE ARE NO MORE AVAILABLE DISKS".

Hope this helps,
