DESCRIPTION

Creates a new storage pool. Storage pools are the groups of disks on which you create storage resources like LUN or filesystems. You need to have an active session with the array.

EXAMPLES

-------------------------- EXEMPLE 1 --------------------------

New-UnityPool -Name 'POOL01' -virtualDisk @{"id"='vdisk_1';"tier"='Extreme_Performance'},@{"id"='vdisk_2';"tier"='Capacity'}

Create pool named 'POOL01' with virtual disks 'vdisk_1' and 'vdisk_2'. Virtual disks are assigned to the Extreme Performance and Capacity tier. Apply to Unity VSA only.

-------------------------- EXEMPLE 2 --------------------------

New-UnityPool -Name 'POOL01' -raidGroup @{"id"='dg_11';"numDisks"= 15; 'raidType'='RAID5'; 'stripeWidth'='5'}

Create pool named 'POOL01' with with 15 disks from diskgroup ID 'dg_11'.RAID protection is a 'RAID5' with a stripe width of 5 (4+1). Apply to physical deployment only.
