v11 & Volume management

Hi all,

How can I create a new Volume in v11 or v11.1? In the section System > Disk Management, I can delete Volume or db already created but I don't see how to Create a new volume.

Any Idea?

Thanks.

Yes, via cli you can create the volume at the installation but via the GUI, you have to select an existing Volume, how can I create a new Volume before launch the installation?

In Version 11.1.0 you can type a name of a new volume or choose from the drop down box.

So, if you want to create a volume name HD1.4, type the number 4 in the selection field.

Hope that helps.

I replaced a blade on a VIPRION 2400 VCMP 16 (RMA) and two vCMP came with orginal volumes while two did not. They only had one volume so I could not do the upgrade.
Here is what I found to work.

from the command line (tm shell)
(/Common)(tmos)# install sys software image BIGIP-11.3.0.2806.0.iso volume HD1.2 create-volume
You can also boot.
then I installed the hotfix ei:
install sys software hotfix Hotfix-BIGIP-11.3.0-3022.0-HF3.iso volume HD1.2
