Click on the create new physical volumes link or Block devices from right side panel.

Click on the /dev/sdb link to create physical volume. (It’s like pvcreate in Linux)

Repeat the same for /dev/sdc. Don’t click on /dev/sda since its root disk for openfiler.

Click on the volume groups from the right side panel to create new VG

Now click on the Manage volumes and create new volume from sanvg
