Storage tier rules determine how storage is assigned to specific storage tiers.
When you create Veritas Operations Manager Enterprise Server rules for storage tiers, you need to use valid syntax. Otherwise, the rule builders do not save the rule. In the Basic Rule Builder, you only need to type values using a valid syntax. In the Advanced Rule Builder, you type the complete rule yourself, which requires an understanding of rule syntax.
Storage tier rules consist of one or more conditions. A condition consists of the following:
A LUN or array attribute
The syntax of a condition must be in the following format: [Object].[Attribute] operator value
For example: [Array].[Vendor] = 'EMC'
You can combine multiple conditions using the AND or OR operators. For example: [Array].[Vendor] = 'EMC' AND [Array].[Model] = 'Cx700'
The following table describes common operators and functions.

When you use comparison operators, you assign a value to an attribute. For example, if you type the rule [Array].[Vendor] = 'EMC' you assign EMC as the value for the attribute (the array vendor). You must type values in a specific format.
To find the exact value of an attribute, see your data source.
