Clariion Traditional Provisioning

Clariion beginners post!

Clarrion Address:
Host name: w2k3 (ip
HBA UID: 50:06:04:82:D5:2F:07:F2:60:06:04:85:E5:2E:08:F2
Storage Group name: SG

1. Have capability to perform secure CLI commands, if not create a security key file

naviseccli -h –addusersecurity –user admin –password pass –scope 0

2. Registration is performed automatically when a HBA is connected to an array, if not follow this manual procedure

naviseccli -h storgaegroup -setpath -o -gname SG -hbauid 50:06:04:82:D5:2F:07:F2:60:06:04:85:E5:2E:08:F2 -sp A -spport 0 -host w2k3 -ip -type 0x03 -failovermode 1 -arraycommpath 1 -unitserialnumber array

Step: 1 RAID group creation

Create RAID Group 3 on clariion consisting of (bus 0, enclosure 0) disks 6, 7, 8, 9.
Delete RAID Group when last LUN is unbound. Set expansion/defragmentation priority to high

naviseccli –h createrg 3 0_0_6 0_0_7 0_0_8 0_0_9 –rm yes –pri high

Step: 2 Bind LUNS

Bind RAID 5 LUN 3 on RAID Group 3. Enable read cache and write cache for this LUN
Set the size to 100 GB. Make the owner of the LUN SPA

naviseccli –h bind r5 3 -rg 3 –rc 1 –wc 1 –sq gb –cap 100

Step: 3 Storage group Creation

Create a storage group with name SG

naviseccli –h storagegroup -create -gname SG

Step: 4 Add LUNS to storage group

naviseccli –h storagegroup –addhlu –gname SG –hlu 2 –alu 14

Step: 5 Connect Hosts

Connect host "w2k3" to storage group SG

naviseccli –h storagegroup –connecthost –host w2k3 –gname SG

Oh wait! What if I want to create a Meta-LUN? 

Step: 6

Assuming you have four existing RAID groups 2,3,4,5 with LUNS 12,13,15,15. Lets create a 100 GB meta LUN

navicli –h bind r5 12 -rg 2 -rc 1 -wc 1 -sq mb -cap 25 -sp a
navicli –h bind r5 13 -rg 3 -rc 1 -wc 1 -sq mb -cap 25 -sp a
navicli –h bind r5 14 -rg 4 -rc 1 -wc 1 -sq mb -cap 25 -sp a
navicli –h bind r5 15 -rg 5 -rc 1 -wc 1 -sq mb -cap 25 -sp a
naviseccli -h metalun -expand -base 12 -lus 13 14 15 -name "LUN 12" -type S -o

Step: 7 Verification

Display status of RAID group

naviseccli –h getrg 3 –lunlist

Display status of a LUN, for example LUN 14

naviseccli –h getlun 14 -element

Display information about Storage Group SG

naviseccli –h storagegroup –list –gname SG

Verify the Meta LUN just created

navicli -h metalun -list metalun 12
