Using a storage pool

Storage Subsystem Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

Storage pools contain one or more file systems, which consume space from the storage pool upon creation or expansion. A storage pool can also be used to control the auto-expansion policy for all of the file systems created in the storage pool. The following procedures describe how to create, delete, expand, remove from service, and rename a storage pool.

Once access is allowed to one system drive (SD) in a storage pool, that storage pool becomes visible in NAS Manager. If access is denied to all SDs in a storage pool, the storage pool is not visible in NAS Manager.
