Adding host entries for new LUNs
Contributors Download PDF of this page
You can create a specific number of new LUNs using SnapDrive for UNIX. SnapDrive for UNIX provides specific commands for this purpose.
Ensure that the host is ready to create specific number of new LUNs. These LUNs reside on a storage system that is mapped to the host.
snapdrive config prepare luns -count count
-countis the number of new LUNs for which you want the host to be prepared.
On Linux, this command adds a new
/dev/sgdevice file for each potential LUN for which a device file is not currently available.
If you have manually edited the
/kernel/drv/lpfc.conffile for persistent bindings, ensure that the FC-bind-WWPN entry is after
# BEGIN: LPUTIL-managed Persistent Bindings.
