Re: Add new file system from EVA

Shalom,

The basic process is this:

1) Use the EVA control station to create the LUN and present it to the 11.31.server. This must include configuration for the WWN, World wide name of the HBA card.

2) As noted the new disk should show up on ioscan, but you may need to boot to make it visible.

3) pvcreate,lvcreate,newfs

4) Set up a permanent mount point in /etc/fstab
