Creating HyperSwap volumes

On Lenovo Storage V5030 or Lenovo Storage V5030F systems, you can use the management GUI or the command-line interface (CLI) to create HyperSwap volumes. A HyperSwap volume has one copy on each site.

Before you create HyperSwap volumes, you must configure the HyperSwap topology. See Configuring site information for the system for directions.

After you configure the HyperSwap topology, complete one of the following steps.

  1. If you are using the management GUI, use the Create Volumes wizard to create HyperSwap volumes.
  2. If you are using the command-line interface, use the mkvolume command to create a volume.
    For example, a HyperSwap volume is created by specifying two storage pools in independent sites.
    mkvolume -size 100 -pool site1pool:site2pool
