Working with SAN Volume Controller > Creating new MDisks on supported storage d... - Pg. 399

Figure 11-31 Add MDisk to a managed disk group 11.8.2 Creating new MDisks on supported storage devices Attention: The Create button, as seen in Figure 11-30 on page 398, is not for creating new MDisk groups. It is for creating new MDisks on storage devices serving the SAN Volume controller. It is not possible to create new MDisk groups using Version 2.3 of Productivity Center common base. Select the MDisk group from the pull-down menu (Figure 11-30 on page 398). Select the Create button. A new panel opens to create the storage volume (Figure 11-32 on page 400). Select a device accessible to the SVC (devices not marked by an asterisk). Devices marked with an asterisk are not acting as storage to the selected SAN Volume Controller. Figure 11-32 on page 400 shows an ESS with an asterisk next to it. This is because of the setup on the test environment. Make sure the device you select does not have an asterisk next to it. Specify the number of MDisks in the Volume quantity and size in the Requested volume size. Select the Defined SVC ports that should be assigned to these new MDisks. Chapter 11.
