Manual configuration if not using ASM (Steps 4 through 9):
  1. Create LUNs on Disk Array


To create the LUNs on the Disk Array, the administrator selects the “Array Configuration Utility” scenario from the “Storage Management” section of the management console. This launches the array configuration utility.



Highlighting the “Create Array” menu item allows the creation of a data volume across the unassigned drives in the system. All ten of the unassigned drives will be used for the iSCSI data volumes.



Clicking “Create Logical Drive” displays the options for Logical Drive creation, including RAID type and size. We create a logical drive of the type RAID 1+0 and use all the available space.





Note – It is important at this point to note that the storage solution LUN size should not be confused with the size of the iSCSI target. The iSCSI target will be configured in a later step and is associated with the storage needed for a particular application on the host server. It is recommended that the LUN size on the storage hardware be as large as reasonably possible to allow the storage subsystem to optimize the use of the physical disks underlying the LUN that is created. In this case, as shown below, we are choosing to create one LUN at the maximum size available for this hardware. The iSCSI targets created later will fit into this one LUN, based on the needs of the host application.

This configuration is saved.



The final configuration is displayed.
