Applies to

  • E-series
  • SANtricity OS
  • Immediate Availability Format (IAF)

Answer

  •  Yes, it is safe to use the volumes while initialization is in progress. E-Series is designed to do that. E-Series performs IAF once a volume is created.
  • You should be able to go ahead and mount all the volumes and use them during the initialization process.
