Creating a storage template using volumes using Veritas Storage Foundation Add-on for Storage Provisioning 4.1

Storage templates let you store the volume configuration information in the form of a template so that you can use them on other volumes.

Storage Provisioning Add-on supports only VxVM volumes. RAID5 volumes are not supported.

Note:

Only hosts with VxFS volumes are displayed on the host table. Depending on which host is selected, the disk group choices change. Only disk groups with VxVM volumes are displayed on the disk group table. Depending on which host and disk group are selected, the volume choices change.
