You can hover over fields to display tooltips.

Virtual Volume Set

The panel shows the virtual volume set that you selected for export.

Export To

To select hosts or a host set to export to, click Add.

Export With

Accept or select a LUN value in the LUN box, or select the Auto check box.
  • The next available LUN range is displayed in the LUN box.

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

  • For a virtual volume set, the LUNs must be consecutive.

  • After exporting a virtual volume set, the next 5 LUNs are skipped before the LUN box is redisplayed in the dialog. This allows space for the volume set to grow in the future.

Using the Auto option

  • When exporting to multiple hosts with the Auto option, each virtual volume is assigned a different LUN for each host.

  • When exporting to multiple hosts without the Auto option, each virtual volume is assigned the same LUN for each host.

  • 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.
