Sun StorEdge 3510 - ADD new disks


I have working array StorEdge 3510 connected to SunFire V490.
What I need to do is to ADD another 4 disks and split them into a RAID 5.
For that reason im going to connect directly to array.

Does anyone can tell me what steps should I take to attach these disks and make them visable under Solaris 10 ?

Let me say again - array is working with 7 other disks and its fine. all of them are visable in Solaris - I NEED TO ADD another 4.

If you're connecting directly to the array (i.e. JBOD configuration), just plug the disks in, then run 'devfsadm'.

Ya, but after I pluge it in, I need to make some steps in array configuration menu. Later I should make logical devices with "devfsadm".

What I need is to know that steps - dont want to experiment on prod. envitoment.

Hi,

have you checked the product documentation for SE 3510? There is a detailed description how to create new raid arrays, split into LUN's, and
so on. You can find them at download.sun.com.

I belive that you are thinking about http://docs.sun.com/ - there is some documentation but I am not able to download it as I dont have paied account.

Does anyone know these steps to type it here ?

#UPDATE:
I have just found that site: http://windowswideopen.com/blog/sun-...-from-windows/

There is writtten that I have to:
1. Create Logical Drive
2. Set/edit (?) Host LUNS
3. Create a Logical Volume

Hope this makes my new drives viewable in OS

Yes, I have - looks like it doesnt work for some docs.
Anyway - task is done. All to do is:

On Sun StorEdge 3510:
1. Create Logical Drive
2. Set/edit (?) Host LUNS

On Solaris:
1. devfsadm -Cv
2. format
3. edit /etc/vfstab
4. mount

done
