V11 SP8

Adding and Assigning Resource Pools in the OSDP C-Mode Storage Policy

Before You Begin

  • Create resource pools and Vserver associations, as described in High-Level Process Flow for OCUM 6.x.
  • For cluster and virtual server clients, associate vServers with the aggregates that form the resource pools for OSDP C-Mode. To associate vServers with the aggregates, use the following command on the cluster:

    vserver modify -vserver Vserver_name -aggr-list aggr_name

  • In the export policy that is associated with the root volume of the vServer where data is replicated, define a rule that provides read/write access to OSDP client computers. Choose this vServer when you add and assign resources pools in the following procedure.
  • If you need to change the storage virtual machine, or if the volume runs out of storage space, create a new OSDP C-Mode storage policy and re-associate all existing clients from the old storage policy to the new one.

Note: After you create the destination volume, you cannot edit the settings on the Provisioning tab of the following procedure.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies > Storage Policies > storage policy.
  2. Right-click Primary (Snap), and then click Properties.

    The Storage Policy Properties dialog box appears.

  3. On the Provisioning tab, click Refresh to display the OnCommand Unified Manager (OCUM) entities.
  4. In the Resource Pools area, select resource pools from the Available list.
  5. To create the volume, select the Storage Virtual Machine check box, and then, from the  Storage Virtual Machine list, select a storage virtual machine computer.

    To display the storage virtual machine that is associated with the selected resource pools, click Refresh.

  6. Click OK.


OCUM creates a single destination volume on the selected resource pools and on the selected storage virtual machine.
