IBM "Metadevice" on IBM storage

Hi guys,

is the any way to create a single volume from multiple luns on a DS8000?
I cannot find any info on the net and i guess it's not possible without SVC..

A "LUN" from any SAN device is just a hdisk device for AIX. As you cannot combine several physical hdisks to one with AIX methods (you can create RAID sets, etc., but this still leaves a hdisk to be a hdisk) you can't create a big LUN from several smaller ones likewise.

You can. of course, create a VG and use the space of the hdisks as if it were one.

I hope this helps.
