Define Storage Volumes

Oracle created a default opc project for you, which is the project where we'll add a storage volume (exampleLUN1) in this example.

Complete these steps to create a new storage volume (LUN).

  1. Log in to ZFSSA using the opc user account.
  2. Navigate from the Shares > Projects screen of the BUI, and from the Projects tab, select the project you want to define (opc, in this example).

    Select the project by double clicking the name or by clicking the edit (pencil) button next to the project name.

  3. Select the 'LUNs' tab (next to the 'Filesystems'), and click the (+) button next to the LUNs label.
  4. When the 'Create LUN' window appears, enter values for the volume and click Apply, as shown in this example.
    • Enter a name for the volume (exampleLUN1).

    • Enter a volume size for the LUN (10 G, for 10 gigabytes).

    • Select a target group (Example Target Group 1).

    • Select an initiator group (compute instance group 1).

  5. Verify that the volume was created by confirming its inclusion in the project.

    From the Shares > Projects screen of the BUI, select the opc project from the Projects tab, click the 'LUNs' tab (next to the 'Filesystems'). You can see the new volume (exampleLUN1), as shown here.

  6. Make note of the GUID number that is allocated to the share, as you will need it when you configure storage on the compute instance.

    In this example, the GUID is 600144F0E196E8460000579DD8CE0003.
