 After creating the volume you'll need to modify some of the settings. To modify a volume go into the filer, click on volumes and click manage. Then click the volume you want to modify. This will get you into the properties of the volume. Then click modify, which will get you another wizard to modify the volume.

 Determine the correct LUN id. You can make up the LUN id, there'​s just one restriction. For the clients connecting to the storage it has to be an unique LUN id. Which means, if the clients already have a few luns you should make a LUN id not in use yet. Determine the correct LUN id. You can make up the LUN id, there'​s just one restriction.
