AliasingYou are able to place aliases for your Ports, Pools, Ranks or Volumes. This give you possibility to assign them some reasonable names instead of numbers for example.
Once there is alias for any item then you will see both (original item name and the alias) in the left menu
It is configured in the configuration file etc/alias.cfg.
Here is an example how it works:
# Alias file # you can place there aliases for port, rank, pool or volumeo# # Syntax: [PORT|POOL|RANK|VOLUME]:storage name:item:your alias # # Examples: #PORT:DS8700-1:0002:PPRC #POOL:DS8700-2:0:Oracle PORT:DS8700-1:0002:PPRC PORT:DS8700-1:0130:PPRC PORT:DS8700-1:0200:PPRC PORT:DS8700-1:0332:PPRC PORT:DS8700-1:0000:ESX PORT:DS8700-1:0100:ESX PORT:DS8700-1:0132:ESX PORT:DS8700-1:0302:ESX
