Volume Sets Node

 

The InveStore Storage Management Software provides the ability to manage single or multi-surface volumes referred to as Volume Sets. The next level of the management console is a folder icon labeled Volume Sets. This object is visible whenever there is a storage device attached and operating on the system.

 

The Volume Sets icon will not appear without a functional storage device attached and operating on the server.

 

Right mouse click on the folder to view the options available to you for managing volumes.
