Adding existing vDisks to a vDisk pool or store

Feb 24, 2016

If vDisks exist in a store, and those vDisks will be used by target devices in your site, you can easily add them to the site’s vDisk Pool by selecting the Console’s Add existing vDisks right-click menu option. This option is available from the vDisk Pool folder and from a store folder.

To add existing vDisks to a site:

  1. Verify the following:
    • Other servers have access to the shared folder where the store is located.
    • The new server is associated with that store.
  2. In the Console tree, right-click on the vDisk Pool in the site where you want to add those vDisks, or right-click on the store where those vDisks exist, then select the Add existing vDisk menu option. The Add Existing vDisks dialog appears.
  3. If you accessed this dialog from the site’s vDisk pool, select the store to search from the drop-down menu. If you accessed this dialog from the store, select the site where vDisks will be added from the drop-down menu.
  4. In the Select the server to use when searching for new vDisks drop-down menu, select the Provisioning Server that will perform the search. Click Search. Any new vDisks that do not exist in the database display in the text box below.
  5. Check the box next to each vDisk that you want to add, or click Select All to add all vDisks in the list, then click Add.
