hi,

if you NetAPP is connected to your SAN,

them make zones betwen your storage and server HBA, them present the lun to your servers,

ioscan -fnC disk

insf -e

ioscan -fnC disk

and them you should be able to see the disk/lun from your storage.

pvcreate / mkdir / mknod / vgcreate / lvcreate ...

1-Make sure that the Netapp guy has settup the correct zoning on the fibre switch and did the presentation of the to your 6600 server by providing the wwn of the fibre card

#ioscan -fnC fc
#fcmsutil /dev/fp*** | grep -i wwn

2- use the sam utility then check for the disk in the disks/vgroups tab

3- after seeing the disk select volume groups then action create new volume group then select your unassigned netapp disk to put inside the vg;

4- select logical volume and action create new logical volume then select the vg u have created and select other parametes like size and pv extent

5- if u want to create a file system select file system then create file system on the logical volume u have been created.

Thats all
