What version of symcli are you running?

can you verify that the license file has the correct name and location,

c:\program files\emc\symapi\config\symapi_licenses.dat

Also what does  symlmf  list   -type se -summary show you?

if the license doesn't appear with that command you may need to add it again

symlmf add -type se -license <LicenseKey>

They are only different user interfaces.

To create symdev using symcli:

create a command file (called create.cmd) containing the following option:

"create dev count=x, size=xxx,emulation=FBA, config=2-Way-Mir disk_group=x;"

Then activate the option using the command:

symconfigure -sid xxx -file create.cmd -v -noprompt commit

For details, please check the Solutions Enabler Symmetrix Array Management CLI 7.6 Product Guide based on your SE version. Below is the ver 7.6 link for your reference.

IN GUI (SMC):

You can check the detail step in SMC online help ( Device Configuration - Creating regular devices 😞

Download link: https://support.emc.com/docu40279_Symmetrix_Management_Console_V7.3.3_Online_Help.htm

BTW, your question written to the users' own "Discussions" space don't get the same amount of attention and questions can go unanswered for a long time, You can select "Move" under ACTIONS along the upper-right.  Then search for and select: "Symmetrix Support Forum" which would be the most relevant for this question.

Thanks for the reply.

I am able to create STD's and to make BCV devices i can change the configuration of STD's to BCV.

And i want to know how we can create IDR devices, Do we have IDR devices in Symmetrix, If so can you help to create IDR devices.
