Using VA7110 as a JBOD

We have a VA7110 but we are not planning to use it as an Array. I like to know about if there are any special configuration issues if it needs to be used as a JBOD. Can it be used in such a way that it works like a disk array,say DS2405 ?

Re: Using VA7110 as a JBOD

You can NOT use the VA7110 as just a JBOD. That will not work. The VA7110 is a RAID array running in AutoRaid mode. You *MUST* create LUNs on the VA7110 in order for your host machine to see disk space.

In order to set up LUNs on this you need to use the CommandView software.

Manuals for the VA7110 are available here:
