Creating a vStore

Creating a vStore

This operation enables you to allocate independent private space to a vStore. The space contains resources such as LUNs, file systems, and ports. Each vStore can obtain complete storage services, but its resources and networks are isolated from other vStores, preventing interference. Before allocating and managing vStore services, you need to create vStores.


Only a super administrator or an administrator can create a vStore.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose vStore > Create.
  3. In the Create vStore dialog box, set the parameters listed in Table 3-5.

    Table 3-5 vStore Parameters





    Name of a new vStore

    [Value range]

    • The name must be unique.
    • The name can contain only letters, digits, periods (.), underscores (_), and hyphens (-).
    • The name contains 1 to 31 characters.


    Description about a vStore



    SAN Capacity Quota

    Capacity available for SAN services


    This parameter applies to V500R007C20 and later versions.

    [Value range]

    No smaller than 512 KB.


    2 GB

    NAS Capacity Quota

    Capacity available for NAS services


    This parameter applies to V500R007C20 and later versions.

    [Value range]

    No smaller than 1 GB.


    2 GB

  4. Click OK.

    The Execution Result dialog box is displayed.

  5. Click Close. The vStore is created successfully.

    The system will automatically show LUNs and file systems owned by each vStore.


    Browsers other than Internet Explorer 8 support both card and list views and the switchover of the two views to show LUNs and file systems of vStores. However, Internet Explorer 8 only supports the list view. The following will use the card view as an example.

    • On the upper right corner of the card view, click to switch to the list view of vStores.
    • On the upper right corner of the list view, click to switch to the card view of vStores.
    • Click Details to view detailed resource information about a vStore.

Follow-up Procedure

After the super administrator creates vStores, it needs to create vStore users to manage vStores. vStore users can log in to DeviceManager and check vStore views.
