Lun_Shirk

I have Windows 2003 server and there are 8 Luns are presented through EVA 8100.

Now we need to shirk the all Luns.

Can any one give the steps to Shirk the Luns.
We have taken the full backup of the server.

Hi,

Not sure what you mean by "shirk"...

Shrink maybe - make them smaller ?

Cheers,

Re: Lun_Shirk

Windows 2003 cannot safely deal with LUN shrinks or manage them. It was a good idea to make a full backup of the data first.

You _might_ save some time by not deleting / recreating/presenting the virtual disks if you:
- backup the data
- delete file systems
- delete partition tables
- shrink the virtual disks
- rescan to recognize the shrink
-- if that did not work, simply reboot
- recreate the (smaller) partitions and filesystems
- restore the data

Re: Lun_Shirk

Well, then your versions of EVA XCS controller firmware and /or Command View EVA are too old.
