EqualLogic PS6110 Show Capacity



  • I factory reset a Dell EqualLogic PS6110 last week. Setup the IP addressing. Needing to create a volume. All I have is CLI as the GUI is so far out of date for Java that it is not even worth using.

    How do I find out the capacity to create the volume?

    Currently, show member gives me this:

    Dallas> show member
    Name       Status  Version    Disks Capacity   FreeSpace  Connections
    ---------- ------- ---------- ----- ---------- ---------- -----------
    dal-storag online  V6.0.10 (R 24    0MB        0MB        0
      e-1                390548)
    
    


  • Looks like there is no free space to make a new volume right now, because there is no storage in that member.



  • What are the contents of the pool?



  • @StrongBad They are old VMs that were migrated to a new VMware environment and running in another storage solution. This storage has been wiped and I am not concerned about recovering the data from this store.



  • It helps to create a raid array for the disks to be under before you can create a volume.

    Don't worry. I did it in RAID5. I knew that you would approve. ;-)

    I'm kidding, I'm kidding.

    That's what I get for posting before I'm totally awake. This is what I get when I run the command on my group:

    BackupTarget> show member
    Name       Status  Version    Disks Capacity   FreeSpace  Connections
    ---------- ------- ---------- ----- ---------- ---------- -----------
    16TB       online  V7.0.7 (R3 16    11.34TB    6.72TB     2
                         97085)
    syr-8TB    online  V7.1.2 (R4 16    5.66TB     3.69TB     3

                         97085)
    BackupTarget>
    

    I think the command is showing the free space on the volumes after creation, not before since I think I have mine fully provisioned.

    Just type:
    show
    and it will scroll through all the things under the show command and you should be able to figure out the size of your member. This is just the first of like 4 pages:
