Configuring Storage for EMC VNX / CLARiiON

About This Task

The EMC white paper EMC CLARiiON SnapView Snapshots and Snap Sessions Knowledgebook explains how to configure storage EMC VNX / CLARiiON from the array console.

The requirements for SnapView clones are as follows:

  • The logic unit number (LUN) and the clone source volume must have the same size in block counts.
  • The LUN must not be part of a storage group.


The following procedure summarizes how to configure storage for EMC VNX / CLARiiON:

  1. Create a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) group.
  2. Bind the LUN.
  3. Create a storage group.
  4. Register the client computer (covered by installing NaviAgent).
  5. Map the LUNs to the client computer where the NaviAgent resides.
  6. Reserved/Clone volumes target properly for SnapView.
