Question:
How do I add new IBM DS8xxx storage subsystem arrays in Raid Devices?  I am getting Object is not available.
Answer:
Please go into DocOps and search for:  Configuring RAIDs
Under that, you will see a sub-topic: Configure IBM DS8870 and DS8880
That will guide you thru the configuration process.
 
PTF SO06202 was recently released. This PTF is to: FIX DS88XX DEFECTS
The problems this corrects are:
1) All fields related to space allocation show data in bytes instead  
   of megabytes for IBM DS8870 release 7.5.1                          
2) The DS88XX Boxes Overview (OBJ02420) object shows truncated data   
   in the "Box Name" field due to the 8-bit length limit.             
This sysmod enlarges  the "Box Name" field to 24 bits. The sysmod also
enables zooming for all DS8870 and DS8880 objects towards the DS88XX LSSs object.
