Hi there!

In this quick tutorial, you are going to learn how to create an LUN in Netapp.

I also don’t want to write too much because this guide is going to be long enough.

The first step is to open “On the command ” and create the new aggregate,

Follow the steps:

The next step is to create volume, as you know the order is  AGG > VOL > LUN

 

Create LUN NETAPP

 

I assigned to the Volume 40MB, Continue with creating.

Before we create an LUN we must create QTREE (via Qtree we can apply quota and more option on VOLUME)

 

Create LUN NETAPP

Browse:

Select  the VOLUME  we have created:

The last step is to create the LUN “Create”

Create LUN NETAPP

 

Create LUN NETAPP

LUN name, LUN size:

Create LUN NETAPP

Select existing volume or QTREE for this LUN:

here we have to create the initiator group.

 

Create LUN NETAPP

I called it “TEST”

Create LUN NETAPP

Open initiator TAB and specify the IQN of destination server:

Create LUN NETAPP

In order to know the IQN of the server on the server you want to assign the LUN you have to open “ISCSI INITIATOR” and on General TAB you will see the “Initiator Name”

Good, now we need to open the server and open the ISCSI INITIATOR again and make the connection between client-server, On Windows Server 2008 R2 you have added NETAPP Filer to the server.

“Add Portal” :
