DELL MD3000 Disks

I've created several disk groups and initialized them. I can see and manipulate them from the Modular Disk Storage Manager yet I can't see them (add them) to the Disk Management portion of my server.
 
How is this done? I've rebooted and rescanned yet they still don't appear.

Have you mapped the new virtual disk to the Host group on the MD3000 so it can be accessed by both hosts

By Host Group do you mean the server?

Ok I see what you mean. Earlier today I deleted everything (so I thought) and set three virtual disks. In the Host Mapping area I sonly see two - from the old virtual disks. None of the new ones.

So I'm facing two issues here, deleting these two old disks and mapping to the three new ones.

The delete button is greyed out for these when I attempt to delete.

*I'm sure that's the issue as soon as I can figure out how to delete these old disk groups.

Thanks

In the Storage manager select the <Modify> tab
The fourth option is <Delete Disk Groups and Virtual Disks>

In here you should see the Group(s), disk(s) and free space(s) that currently exist on your MD

You will not be able to delete a disk if it is doing any of the following
Initialising
reconstructing
Copyback
Modification
or if it is a source or target in a virtual disk copy that is in progress, pending or failed

If this is the reason you will have to wait until the process has completed to continue
