Creating a maxCache Container

To create a maxCache Container:
  1. In the Enterprise View, select a system, then select a controller on that system.
  2. On the ribbon, in the maxCache group, click Create maxCache

  3. When the wizard opens, select a RAID level for the container, then click Next.

    See Selecting the Best RAID Level for more information about RAID levels.

  4. Select the SSDs that you want to include in the maxCache Container. Be sure to select the right number of SSDs for the RAID level you selected.

  5. Click Next.
  6. (Optional) In the RAID Attributes panel, customize the settings for the maxCache Container. You can:
    • Enter a name for the maxCache Container. Names can include any combination of letters and numbers, but cannot include spaces.
    • Set a smaller logical drive size. (By default, the maxCache Container uses all available drive space.)
    • Set the build method to: Build, Clear, or Quick.
    • Set the build priority to: High, Medium, or Low.

    See Fine-tuning Logical Drives for details about customizing the settings in the RAID Attributes panel.

  7. Click Next, then review the logical drive settings. To make changes, click Back.
  8. Click Finish.

    maxView Storage Manager builds the maxCache Container. Use the Event Log and Task Log to track build progress.
