VMAXe and expanding a meta

I ran into an issue the other day while trying to extend a meta of VMAXe, I was trying to do it through the Symmetrix Management Console, I had pre-created the BCV, but I the device was not listed as a selectable BCV for protected expansion. After a bit of digging and actually getting a error message when I tried to expand the meta from the CLI I realized (and in hind site is makes sense), but you need to fully preallocate your BCV’s (and have it be presistant through reclaim or copy, that little check box below the preallocate options) now you can do this at BCV creation, or post creation the choice is yours.

  1. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to understand so much about
    this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few p.c. to power the message home a little bit, however other than that,
    this is magnificent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to
    be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing
    without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
