What is the resource pool used for?

1

The resource pool provides common resources for the following value-added services:
Virtual snapshot
During the virtual snapshot creation, the resource pool on the owning controller of the source LUN is employed.

Incremental LUN copy
During the incremental LUN copy, the resource pool on the owning controller of the source LUN is employed.

Asynchronous remote replication
During synchronization of the asynchronous mirrored pair, the resource pools on both the owning controller of the primary LUN and the working controller of the slave LUN are employed.

You must ensure that common resources are available before running the services above. Otherwise, add LUNs to relevant resource pools for compensation.

Whether the SAN resources and NAS resources reside in the same storage pool
SAN resources are independent of NAS resources. Storage pools are created specifically for LUNs or file systems. That is, LUNs and file systems cannot coexist in one storage pool but can reside in the same disk domain. The capacity of the storage pool can be dynamically expanded.
