Can multiple LUNs be provisioned to multiple volumes to create multiple LUN workflows?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP System Manager (OSM)
  • System Manager 9.8


The new System Manager 9.8 allows for multiple LUNs to be provisioned, however, it does not allow the user to spread the LUNs across multiple volumes.


  1. After provisioning multiple LUNs, create another LUN.
    This will create another volume.
  2. Make sure that volume is on the node / tier that you want it located and move it if it is not.
  3. Perform a LUN move to the newly created volume, and delete the single LUN from the volume.
