Create Child Initiator Groups, Add WWNS and assign alias

# Create Child IG for Server1
symaccess -sid 1234 -name IG_Server1 -type initiator create -consistent_lun

# Add WWPns
symaccess -sid 1234 -name IG_Server1 -type initiator -wwn 1000000000000001 add
symaccess -sid 1234 -name IG_Server1 -type initiator -wwn 1000000000000002 add

# Assign Aliases to HBA WWPNs
symaccess -sid 1234 -wwn 1000000000000001 rename -alias Server1/A1
symaccess -sid 1234 -wwn 1000000000000002 rename -alias Server1/B1


# Create Child IG for Server2
symaccess -sid 1234 -name IG_Server2 -type initiator create -consistent_lun

# Add FA ports to the PG
symaccess -sid 1234 -name PG_Server1_SHRD -type port add -dirport 1d:4,1d:31,3d:4,3d:31

4

Create Parent SG and set the IOPS Max limit if required

# Create Parent SG( Shared )
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_SHRD -type storage create

# Set the IOPS Maximum Limit
symsg -sid 1234 -sg SG_Server1_SHRD set -iops_max 30000

5

Create Child SGs and assign SLO

# Create a Child SG for the Diamond devices and assign the SLO
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_SHRD_Diamond -type storage create
symsg -sid 1234 -sg SG_Server1_SHRD_Diamond set -slo Diamond -srp SRP_1

# Create a Child SG for the Silver devices and assign the SLO
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_SHRD_Silver -type storage create
symsg -sid 1234 -sg SG_Server1_SHRD_Silver set -slo Silver -srp SRP_1

6

Add Child SGs to the parent SG

symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_SHRD -type storage add sg SG_Server1_SHRD_Diamond
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_SHRD -type storage add sg SG_Server1_SHRD_Silver

7

Create devices and add to the Child SGs

# Create 1 x 10GB device and add to the Diamond SG
symdev -sid 1234 create -tdev -cap 10 -captype gb -N 1 -emulation FBA -sg SG_Server1_SHRD_Diamond

# Create 1 x 20GB device and add to the Silver SG
symdev -sid 1234 create -tdev -cap 20 -captype gb -N 1 -emulation FBA -sg SG_Server1_SHRD_Silver

8

Create Masking View to tie all these objects together.

symaccess -sid 1234 create view -name MV_Server1_SHRD -IG IG_Server1_SHRD -PG PG_Server1_SHRD -SG SG_Server1_SHRD

Requirement 2:

Allocate storage from VMAX3 aray to a single server( Non Shared - NSHD )

Create Parent Initiator Group and add Child IGs to it

# Create Parent IG
symaccess -sid 1234 -name IG_Server1_NSHD -type initiator create -consistent_lun

# Add the Child Server IG to Parent IG
symaccess -sid 1234 -name IG_Server1_NSHD -type initiator add -ig IG_Server1

3

Create PG and add FA ports

symaccess -sid 1234 -name PG_Server1_NSHD -type port create

# Add FA Ports to the PG
symaccess -sid 1234 -name PG_Server1_NSHD -type port add -dirport 1d:4,1d:31,3d:4,3d:31

4

Create Parent SG and set the IOPS Max limit if required

# Create Parent SG
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_NSHD -type storage create

# Set the IOPS Maximum Limit
symsg -sid 1234 -sg SG_Server1_NSHD set -iops_max 30000

5

Create Child SGs and assign SLO

# Create Child SG for Gold Devices and assign SLO
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_NSHD_Gold -type storage create
symsg -sid 1234 -sg SG_Server1_NSHD_Gold set -slo Gold -srp SRP_1

# Create Child SG for Bronze Devices and assign SLO
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_NSHD_Bronze -type storage create
symsg -sid 1234 -sg SG_Server1_NSHD_Bronze set -slo Silver -srp SRP_1

6

Add Child SGs to the parent SG

symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_NSHD -type storage add sg SG_Server1_NSHD_Gold
symaccess -sid 1234 -name SG_Server1_NSHD -type storage add sg SG_Server1_NSHD_Bronze

7

Create devices and add to the Child SGs

# Create 1 x 5GB device and add to the Gold SG
symdev -sid 1234 create -tdev -cap 5 -captype gb -N 1 -emulation FBA -sg SG_Server1_NSHD_Gold

# Create 1 x 15GB device and add to the Bronze SG
symdev -sid 1234 create -tdev -cap 15 -captype gb -N 1 -emulation FBA -sg SG_Server1_NSHD_Bronze

8

Create Masking View to tie all these objects together.

symaccess -sid 1234 create view -name MV_Server1_NSHD -IG IG_Server1_NSHD -PG PG_Server1_NSHD -SG SG_Server1_NSHD

This whole steps can be easily created by using Vmax3 Allocation Utility.
