Viewing the volumes from InfiniBox

The volumes that were provisioned by InfiniHost are also visible from the InfiniBox Management Console (both GUI and InfiniShell).

InfiniBox Management Console displays information in addition to what is displayed on InfiniHost. For example:

  • Thin – indicates whether the volume is thin provisioned. The default is Yes.
  • Write protect – upon creation, the volume is write-enabled. However, it is possible to protect it from writing. This operation is available from the  GUI and InfiniShell.
  • SSD Cache – indicates whether the volume uses SSD drives. This attribute is inherited from the pool and can be set per volume. 

InfiniBox GUI and CLI instructions

Instructions for operating the InfiniBox GUI and CLI are available on the Support site.
