Re: P2000 64 disks W2008 cannot create single lun

Hi,

As per the P2000 Tech docs, below is the information.

* Max 16 disks per Vdisk for RAID 3,5 and 6
* Max 32 disks per Vdisk for RAID 0,50 and 10
* Max 32 Vdisks, 128 LUNs per vdisk, 256 total LUNs per array

I hope this a bit old information, eventhough as per this it should allow for 32 Disks to create RAID 1+0. So Better check the firmware and upgraded to latest available version and try to create the volme.

I have requested P2000 model, disk and OS information. Is SMU used to configure? Is SMU the limiter?

Thanks!
