Dell PowerStore Configuring Volumes

Volume groups in PowerStore appliances

A volume group in a PowerStore appliance consists of one or more volumes. A volume can only be a member of one volume group at a time.

To configure a volume group in a PowerStore appliance, use the Volume Groups page in the PowerStore Manager. You can perform the following operations from this page:

  • Create a volume group.
  • Modify properties for the volume group, including whether write order consistency is enabled for the volumes in the volume group.
  • Delete a volume group.
  • Modify the performance policy of a volume group.
  • Migrate a volume group to a different appliance.
  • Add a volume group to or delete a volume group from the dashboard watchlist.
  • Restore from a snapshot.
  • Assign or unassign a protection policy.
  • Create a thin clone of the volume group.
  • Refresh content from a related volume group.
  • Gather support materials for a volume group.
  • Add existing volumes to a volume group.
  • Add new volumes to a volume group.
  • Map or unmap a host or host group.

To monitor the capacity, performance, protection status, and members of a volume group, click the name of the volume group you want to view. For performance, you can view an aggregation of metrics across the volume group. For protection, you can perform snapshot operations, monitor and manage replication, and manage the protection policy.

NOTE:Once you assign a protection policy to a volume group, it cannot be changed at the member level.
