mapping -

map dev 1234 to dir 5e:0 lun=<>;

symcfg -sid 95 list -available -address -dir 5e -p 0

Lun addresses are from 0-4095

Host contraints --> OS that do not support more than 256 addresses or lun Nos.

Dynamic Lun addressing ==========================
Allows specific lun value to be assigned to the symm device regardless of what lun
value was
assigned when the device was mapped to the FA

symaccess -sid 95 create view -name host1_mv -ig host1_ig -pg host1_pg -sg
host1_sg -lun 50 ==> use 50 as a starting lun address for the devices

So all hosts will see the for Autoprovisioning. This dev is typically mapped to all the FA ports initially. This special dev works as a initial gatekeeper device until you set up the other gatekeeper devs for your storage management env. default lun address is 0 on vmax. ACLX flag on the FE ports check its ACLX Database to ensure what dev has to be made accessible to which HBA wwn ACLX Devive -is a factory configured dev and not managed by an enduser.[9:58:40 AM] Mohit Prasad: 5 mins [10:57:51 AM] Mohit Prasad: ACLX Flag ACLX DEVICE =============== ACLX Flag -. Once initial setup is done with the gatekeepers configured for storage management purposes you can unmap the device to prevent it being visible to other hosts. .
