To view snapshot LUNs for a storage system:
In the ESI window, select the storage system with the snapshot LUN.
Click LUNs from the center pane to display a list of snapshot LUNs.
Click the plus (+) symbol to view disk details.
To create a snapshot LUN, use the ESI PowerShell Toolkit. ESI does not support creating snapshot LUNs from the ESI window, but you can create them using ESI PowerShell cmdlets. Getting started with the ESI PowerShell toolkits provides more details. You can then view and delete snapshot LUNs in the ESI window.
You cannot view or manage snapshot LUNs for VMAX systems in ESI. However, future ESI releases will support snapshot LUNs for VMAX.
For a block storage system, when you create snapshot LUNs, ESI adds a new snapshot LUNs storage pool to the Storage Pool tab. This pool groups and presents all the snapshot LUNs created for that storage system in that special storage pool. This pool is just a group and is not an actual storage pool. Viewing storage pools provides details about storage pools.
