Re: present a disk to a VM

Read the manuals?
use the an pages?
Take a course on Integrity VM?

If you have created a VM, then yes, that command will work.

Re: present a disk to a VM

First the SAN disk has to be presented to the VM host. Assuming this has been done, the command you specified should work. Do an ioscan on the guest before doing hpvmmodify and then again afterward because the device file will likely be different on the guest.

Similar command to present the NIC:
#hpvmmodify -P vm00 -a network:lan:[hardware-address]. See for more.
