creating new ldev in xp 1024

Hi,
we have an XP 1024 used for testing environment and I'd like to practise a little, you know, to learn how to do basic things on this array. I have basic skills in SAN, was able to create new lun in older va7400 disk array, but here it seems like a more complex task :).

On the remote web console, I can see on the status that approximatelly 30% of all LDEV's are unassigned. Does this mean that 30% of all storage is ready to be allocated / used for some hosts?

My next question is, how can I create new LDEV, so I can assign it to any host? I was reading some manuals (http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02250809/c02250809.pdf) , does it have to do something with 'adding a new path'? It has to be configured in 'LUN Management/ security' icon, right?

Thank you very much for your answers

Re: creating new ldev in xp 1024

This isn't really trivial, I suggest to study the related manuals, available from http://www.hp.com/go/bsc -> storage software

Hope this helps!
