Here is an excerpt from the Unisphere for VMAX online help:
To add meta members:
Select the storage system.
Select Storage > Volumes to open the Volume Dashboard.
In the Volume Type panel, double-click the type of meta volume you want to expand. The Meta Volumes list view opens.
Select the meta volume and click Add Member to open the Add Member dialog box.
For striped metas only: To protect the original striped meta data, do the following:
Select the Protect Data option.
Type or select the name of the BCV meta head to use when protecting the data. By default, this field is filled in with the first available BCV.
Select one or more volumes to add to the meta volume.
To reserve the volumes, select Reserve. In addition you can also type reserve Comments and select an Expiration Date. The default values for Reserve and Comments are set in Symmetrix Preferences for volumes reservations. If the volumes are not automatically reserved you can optionally reserve them here.
