Hitachi Storage LUN Provisioning
Using Hitachi Device Manager - Storage Navigator from any Hitachi VSP G/F series storage to Provision the LUNs to Servers/Hosts
First, we need to create Host Groups on the defined Storage ports from Hitachi Storage Navigator windows.
If you have already created the LUNs from any storage Pool, you can assign those from the same wizard or else finish the wizard and apply.
Create new LDEVs or LUNs (Virtual Volumes) from any Pool in the storage array and assign them to the newly created Host Groups.
Finally, login into the Servers (VMs), do a disk rescan and you should be good to go with the new external storage groups.
Giving all the steps in writing would be a little difficult, here is my first YouTube video which will help you to go through the demonstration on this topic.
And here is the table which will help to decide the Host Group mode and Host mode option selection during Hitachi Storage Host Group creation:
Host Mode Description
Host Mode Option (HMO)
13, 40 (V-VOL expansion)
13, 54, 63
12, 13, 43
2 (Only for RAC), 13, 40
