Export Virtual Volumes and Volume Sets (host set centric)

You can hover over fields to display tooltips.


The panel shows the storage system and virtual domain (if any) for the host set that you selected on the Host Sets screen.

Virtual Volumes

To select virtual volumes or a virtual volume set to export, click Add and follow the instructions on the dialog that opens.

Export To

The panel shows the host set that you selected for the export.

Export With

Accept or select a LUN value in the LUN box or select the Auto check box.
  • If you are exporting a single virtual volume, the next available LUN is displayed in the LUN box.

  • If you are exporting multiple virtual volumes, the next available LUN range is displayed in the LUN box.

  • To specify a different LUN or LUN range, select the LUNs from the list. You can also type a single LUN number, comma-separated LUN numbers (for example: 1, 2, 3), or a LUN range using a dash (for example: 1-5).

Using the Auto option
  • If you have previously exported a virtual volume set and then selected another virtual volume set to export to the same host or host set, and you select the Auto option, the next 5 LUNs are not skipped before the LUN box is redisplayed in the dialog. Thus, no space is allowed for the previous volume set to grow.

When you have completed your choices, click Export to start the action and close the dialog.
