Volume Wizard

Use the Volume Wizard to create both flexible volumes and traditional volumes. Consider creating one or more additional volumes under the following circumstances:

  • A current traditional volume has more disks or storage than is convenient to manage as one unit.
  • You want to accommodate users with different security styles or oplocks requirements than the current volumes meet, and you do not want to create a qtree for that purpose.
  • You have a multilingual environment and want to provide one volume for each language and character set.

You can have up to 500 FlexVol volumes on a single storage system.


Note For clusters, these limits apply to each node individually, so the overall limits for the pair are doubled. Higher number of traditional and FlexVol volumes on your system can affect takeover and giveback times if your system is part of an active-active pair (cluster) environment. When adding traditional or FlexVol volumes to a cluster, consider testing the takeover and giveback times to ensure that they fall within your requirements.

You can have up to 100 aggregates (including traditional volumes) on a single storage system.
