You can use SnapDrive for UNIX commands to provision storage by creating a LUN on the storage system.

  1. At the command-line interface, enter the following command:

    snapdrive storage create -lun long_lun_name -lunsize [lun_name …​] -lunsizesize [{-reserve | -noreserve}] -igroup ig_name [ig_name …​]]ig_name [ig_name …​]]

    SnapDrive for UNIX creates the LUNs you specify.

Example: creating three 10 GB LUNs on a storage system

snapdrive storage create -lun acctfiler:/vol/vol1/lunA lunB lunC - lunsize 10g
