Adjusting OceanStor 9000's zones and zone attributes

Procedure for adjusting OceanStor 9000's zones and zone attributes:
1. Log in to DeviceManager.
2. Check licenses in the storage system.
Load balancing provided by the InfoEqualizer feature is a value-added feature, so you must ensure that each license file in the storage system includes information about InfoEqualizer.
Choose Settings > License Management > Active License and check whether the activated licenses contain information about InfoEqualizer. If information about InfoEqualizer is not contained, follow the displayed instructions to import and activate the required license.
3. Create a zone. OceanStor 9000 has a default zone root. Administrators can create more zones based on service requirements. The owning subnet of a zone can be configured using the subnet CONFIGURE item in zone CONFIGURE.
a. Choose Settings > Cluster Settings > InfoEqualizer > Zone Management.
b. Click Create. In the Create Zone dialog box, enter the required information and click OK.
4. Migrate nodes. After zones are created, nodes can be migrated from the root zone to other newly created zones.
a. In the zone list, select a newly created zone.
b. Click Add above the node list.
c. In the Add Node dialog box that is displayed, select nodes that you want to migrate to the zone and click OK.
Note: The Add Node dialog box displays nodes in the root zone.
