User Mangement
Default logon to DS GUI and CLI is admin/admin Password must be changed straight away: chuser -pw passw0rd admin

Activation of License Codes


Required before any logical configuration can be done Obtain machine information: serial number, machine signature Ensure you have the IBM Licensed Function Authorisation Document Go to http://www.ibm.com/storage/dsfa Follow instrcutions and note down license actiation code Apply activation codes to storage image using DS GUI

Logical Subsystems - LSS


 

No fixed association with device adapters or Ranks Server affinity only


Even numbered LSS associated with server 0 Odd numbered LSS associated with server 1

FB LSS creation is implicit


LSS selection during volume creation results in LSS creation

Volume addressing
Format is hexadecimal XYZZ X = Address group (0-F) XY = LSS Number (00-FE) ZZ = Volume Number (00-FF)

Recommendations
Create a single LSS for each Extent Pool Define this during volume creation

Create FB Volumes


Logical Volumes formed of increments of extents


Minimum 1 extent Maximum FB is 2TB

Volumes are defined in Decimal sizes


Each 1GB FB Binary Extent is 1.073741824 GB Decimal

 

Ensure OS support exists for larger LUNs Maximum number of volumes is 65280

Create Volume Groups


   

Provides LUN masking feature Volumes can be assigned to one or more volume groups Up to 8320 Volume Groups

Any Host Port (or Host Group) can only access one Volume Group Volume Groups can be accessed by multiple hosts
Providing they use same blocksize and addressing mode Data integrity reposnsibility of the host OS/software

Clustering support
Volumes can be asssigned to multiple Volume Groups Mutliple hosts can be in the same Volume Group

Recommendations
Create one Volume Group per Hoat Group Name Volume Groups with host names (up to 16 chars)

Create Hosts and Host Groups


 

Host attacments assigned as Host Connections

Individual host ports can be grouped into Host Groups

Host Connection created by assigning FC HBA WWN Profiles used to identify host type Recommendations
Group all host connections from a single host into a Host Group
