  • Cloud Account- Choose the cloud account to be used for this volume from the drop-down list.

  • Leave the ‘Preferred LUN’ at ‘No Preference’, unless you need to explicitly set the LUN value used by the volume (this value will be used unless there is a conflict with another volume). 
  • Click the green checkmark next to the volume access group that you selected,
  • Finally click the ‘Save’ button to complete the volume creation.
