Dell PowerStore Configuring Volumes

Create a volume group


All members of a volume group must be hosted from a single appliance.


  1. Under Storage, select Volume Groups.
  2. Click Create.
  3. On the Create Volume Group slide-out panel, enter the name of the volume group. Optionally enter a description and choose a protection policy to apply to all volumes within the volume group.
    NOTE:If you apply a protection policy to the volume group, you cannot override the protection for individual volumes within the group. If you anticipate that member volumes might require different protection policies, consider removing these volumes from the group or creating a separate group for them.
  4. To ensure consistent protection across all members of the volume group, select Apply write order consistency to all volumes in this volume group.
    This setting means that local and remote protection holds all writes on members of the volume group to provide a uniform point-in-time copy across all members. Making a volume group write-order-consistent ensures that the write order is preserved among members when volume group snapshots are taken or when the volume group is replicated.
  5. Click Create.
