LUN Addresses on a FA Port available for mapping


Before you are ready to map devices to an FA Port via command line (symcli) you will need to determine what LUN (hyper) addresses are available out there for mapping purposes (unused).


symcfg list -sid xxxx -FA dir -P port -available -addresses

Parameters

xxxx is the last 4 digits of the symmetrix serial number
dir is the FA director number eg 4B
port is the FA’s port number ie 0 or 1

This will produce an output that will indicate all available addresses, a range of available addresses with an asterisk (*).  Also the LUN (hyper) addresses displayed in this output are hexadecimal values.

For example, in the output below, the available LUN (hyper) addresses are 06 through 24, 29 through 7F and greater than 83.
