In the drop-down list, click the name of a Hitachi array that supports LDEVs. Click LDEV.

3. In the LDEV Creation Options panel, select a RAID group from which to create the LDEVs. The RAID group must have free capacity greater than or equal to the product of the LDEV size and number of LDEVs you are creating. 4. Complete the rest of the fields in the LDEV Creation Options panel as follows. Then click Next.

Type a number in the Number of LDEVs field to specify how many LDEVs you are creating. For Tagma and 9900 series arrays, click a value in the Emulation Mode drop-down list to select an emulation mode; for example, OPEN-3 or OPEN-8. The maximum LDEV size for the selected emulation mode is displayed below the drop-down list. For other Hitachi arrays, click a value in the Bind LDEV to Storage Processor field to specify the array processor to which the new LDEVs will be bound. In the LDEV Size field, specify a size in gigabytes (GB). Each LDEV you create will have this size.

5. In the Summary panel, do the following:

Verify that your selections are correct. To defer the task until later, check Schedule Task and use the drop-down lists to specify a date and time. (Time is in 24-hour format; for example, 21:00 means 9:00 p.m.) To submit the task immediately, clear Schedule Task.

Your LUN creation request is submitted as a task to CommandCentral Storage. 6. After you create LDEV LUNs, you can use them to build aggregate LUSEs,

Creating Hitachi LUSE aggregate LUNs


Use the following procedure to create LUSE aggregate LUNs on a Hitachi array. To create an aggregate LUSE on a Hitachi array 1. In the Tools section of the Console, click LUN Builder.

2. In the LUN Builder's Select Array panel, do the following and click Next:

In the drop-down list, click the name of a Hitachi array that supports LUSE LUNs. Click LUSE.

3. In the Select LDEVs for LUSE panel, do the following and click Next:

Click a value in the Group drop-down list to select a RAID level. This setting determines the LDEVs available to you and also determines the size of the new LUSE LUN. Accept the value of Concatenate. This indicates the layout of the LUN. In the table, check two or more LDEVs that will be combined into the new LUSE LUN. As you select LDEVs, the Selected Capacity field is updated to show the total capacity of the new LUN.

4. For Hitachi array types other than 9910 and 9960 Series, skip to step 5. For 9910 and 9960 Series arrays, all LUSE LUNs must be bound to a host storage domain (array virtual port). Use the Select Host Storage Domain panel to create port bindings for the new LUN. Do the following and click Next:

In the list, click the host storage domain to which the LUN will be bound. In the SCSI LUN ID field, type an ID by which the LUN will be known to the port.

Masking array storage to host ports using the LUN Masking wizard
You can mask host ports to array LUNs using the LUN Masking wizard. Launch the dialog from the object view for either a storage object (such as an array or LUN) or a host (such as a host, HBA, or HBA port). To mask array storage to a host port

1. In the Console, display the object view for a storage object (such as an array or a LUN) or for a host object (such as a host, HBA, or HBA port). 2. In the drop-down list, click Add LUN Masking(s) and click Go to launch the LUN Masking wizard. 3. If you launched the wizard from a storage object, skip to step 4. If you launched the wizard from a host object, choose an array by clicking its name in the Select Array window's drop-down list. Then click Next. 4. If the array does not require an array port to be specified as part of the masking operation, skip to step 5. Otherwise, click an array port in the Select Array Port window's drop-down list and then click Next. 5. In the Add LUN Masking(s) panel, which lists all permissible combinations of storage and the hosts that can consume the storage, do the following:

Check one or more storage-host combinations in the table. LUN masking will occur for each combination you select. To defer the task until later, check Schedule Task and use the drop-down lists to specify a date and time. (Time is in 24-hour format; for example, 21:00 means 9:00 p.m.) To submit the task immediately, clear Schedule Task.

Click Finish.

The LUN masking operation is submitted as a task to CommandCentral Storage. In the array object view, the LUNs involved in the masking operation are displayed in a Task Reserved table until the operation is completed.

Creating zones
Use the Zone Builder to create zones and manage them. Note: Prior to CommandCentral Storage 5.1.1, the objects in a zone could not come from more than one fabric. That restriction no longer applies. To create a zone 1. In the Tools section of the Console, click Zone Builder. 2. In the Zone Builder's Select Fabric and Zone panel, do the following and click Next:

In the Fabric drop-down list, click the SAN fabric on which you want to create the new zone. In the Switch drop-down list, click a switch within the fabric. Click Create New. In the Zone field, type the zone name. Zone names must consist of alphanumeric characters and/or the underscore (_) mark. Spaces, punctuation marks, and special characters are not valid.

If you want the new zone to draw its members from more than one fabric, check Enable zone member selection from multiple fabrics.

3. In the Modify Members panel, do the following and click Next:

Check one or more objects in the Available Objects list. (You can expand an object's branches and sub-branches to display individual nodes and ports.) Checked objects are added to the Zoned Objects table on the right side of the panel.

To remove objects from the zone, check their names in the Zoned Objects table. Then click Remove Object(s) and click Go.

4. In the Modify Zone Set Membership panel, which displays only if the fabric on which you are updating the zone supports zone sets, do the following and click Next:

Check at least one inactive zone set in which the new zone will be a member. The new zone will become a member of the zone set when the zone set is enabled.

To enable one of the inactive zone sets you checked, click Enable Zone Set and then click a zone set in the drop-down list.

5. In the Confirm Selections panel, verify that your selections are correct. Then do the following:

For zones on a Cisco fabric, check Save Switch Configuration to save the zone configuration to the switch. If you do not choose this option, the switch's physical configuration remains unchanged.

To defer the task until later, check Schedule Task and use the drop-down lists to specify a date and time. (Time is in 24-hour format; for example, 21:00 means 9:00 p.m.) To submit the task immediately, clear Schedule Task.
