Add External Volume via HSAE - LDEV ID always = 0

    When I add a new External Volume via HSAE, I can decide the Path_Group_ID, the Parity_Group, the Name, but I can't decide the LDEV ID !

    When I want to use this External Volume for a Quorum Device, the Quorum Device resides always on LDEV ID 0 !

    Or are there any options to choose the LDEV ID - I did not see ? 

    Regards
    Sven

    If you use CCI you can choose the external LUN ID and also the Internal LDEV ID as you would like it.
    In HSAe it will default to LUN ID 0  and also LDEV ID whatever is the lowest free LDEV ID.
    Add the discovered External Volume
    $ raidcom add external_grp -path_grp 1 -external_grp_id 1-1 -port CL1-C -external_iscsi_name iqn.xxx.linux-iscsi.xxs-hsq001-iscsi:port1 -external_address 10.22.124.5 -lun_id 100  or 0

    or use another LUN ID

    Add ldev
     raidcom add ldev -external_grp_id 1-1 -ldev_id 0x0100 -capacity all

    Name the ldev
    raidcom modify ldev -ldev_id 0x0100 -ldev_name Quorum0
     
    enable  Quorum  on ldev Primary
     raidcom modify ldev  -ldev_id 0x0100 -quorum_enable 61108xx M800 -quorum_id 0
    Check Quorum
    raidcom get quorum
