ESX on EVA - Console LUN ID?

I have ESX 2.5.3 in production on an EVA 4000. Whenever I go to Storage Management I always get a pop-up about the partition table & "geometry info is invalid". After clicking OK to rescan the SAN, everything is fine. I have been told this is due to a management LUN on the SAN (Console LUN ID = 0 ?).

Is there some way to mask this management LUN or change it to a higher number to prevent this pop-up all the time? I have attached a screenshot of the pop-up & CommandView EVA settings. We only have one shelf and it is partitioned as a single 655GB vdisk\LUN - we might be getting another shelf, but I'm not worried about hitting the default maximum LUN count for awhile.

welcome to the OpenVMS ITRC forum.

Although your question may or may not have anything to do with OpenVMS, here is a pointer to a previous ITRC thread, which seems to answer your question:

OOPS - I think I was viewing an OpenVMS response when I created my account & posted. I will repost in the SAN area to reach the proper audience.

Thanks for the link.
