Expanding Storage

There are two ways you can add free space to an Xsan volume:

Add RAID systems (new LUNs) to existing storage pools


Add entire new storage pools to the volume


Both methods unmount and remount the volume on clients, so choose a time that’s
convenient for your SAN users.

You can also add new volumes to a SAN at any time.

For information about expanding Xsan storage, see “Adding Storage” on page 51.
