You can also script the process, but this will be labour intensive and would need a lot of testing to ensure it works in your environment.
Thanks Biju. But it would be great if you provide more details for this.
Kindly visit the links provided in the previous posts and if you have specific questions regarding the product, feel free to post them.
I created a Python script to provision new hosts/storage. I have a Linux box with Raidcom setup for all of our arrays where the script runs. I built in some business logic and running rules specific to where I work. Feel free to modify my script to your needs. It is based entirely on Raidcom cmds as they are the fastest way to cut storage on HDS frames.

Thanks alott Ed. In my environment we dont have Linux based hosts . but thescripts shared by you is really helpful .
Try this its windows base, but dont forget to verify all script that already generated

raidcom is part of CCI, by defaut is already preinstalled on VSP SVP or you can also installed on your SAN Mgmt server
