Working with auxiliary storage pools

You can use system service tools (SST) and dedicated service tools (DST) to work with auxiliary storage pools (ASPs). ASPs are also called disk pools. You can create new encrypted or unencrypted user ASPs, or add disk units to an existing ASP.

When you are making changes to the disk configuration on your system, see the Configuring disks and disk protection topic for the correct sequence of steps for your situation.

You can use System i® Navigator to work with all types of ASPS, including independent ASPs.
